Those who go to Milwaukee's PrideFest celebration this weekend may get introduced to "Paul," the mobile visitor center from Visit Saint Paul, the official convention & visitors bureau of Saint Paul, Minn.

Paul will be at PrideFest June 7-9 to celebrate Pride and marriage equality in Minnesota and to encourage people to visit St. Paul.

"Passing of the Freedom to Marry Bill has the potential to bring many same-sex couples to Saint Paul who want to celebrate their wedding day with us," said Karolyn Kirchgesler, president & CEO of Visit Saint Paul. "PrideFest Milwaukee gives us a chance to get in front of a lot of people and share why Saint Paul is the perfect destination for a wedding, a long weekend, or a full-fledged vacation."

Saint Paul's mobile visitor center is an eye-catching automobile with a 360-degree canopy system, sunroof, two 19-inch televisions, a spin to win wheel, bright orange chairs, cellphone chargers and completely wrapped in Saint Paul imagery. 

Visitors who take a picture of themselves with Paul at PrideFest and submit it have a chance to win a hotel overnight and two tickets to Beyonce on July 18 in a suite at Xcel Energy Center or an iPad Mini.

Entrants also become eligible for a Grand Prize VIP Saint Paul Experience, valued at $4,000 that will be drawn at the end of the summer.
