Building the Community of Choice in Tampa Bay means creating a welcoming, equitable and compassionate Largo. Efforts to promote an inclusive city directly support our long-term focus on community pride and sustainability by enhancing the vitality of our community. To support these efforts and to join our neighboring communities, the City of Largo is participating in several activities and events throughout the month of June.

On Tuesday, June 7 at 5pm, Largo community members and city team members are invited to attend the ceremonial flag-raising of the Pride flag on the side lawn of Largo City Hall prior to the City Commission Meeting.
