Two people were recovering Sunday night after being stabbed at Pride Fort Lauderdale Beach Festival, police said.

It was not immediately clear what led to the two people — who were not identified — being stabbed.

“We believe this was an isolated incident which began as an altercation between two parties,” Casey Liening, a spokeswoman for Fort Lauderdale police, said.

The annual festival, which wrapped up Sunday with a fireworks display on the beach, included a parade, block parties and other events.

Liening said the incident happened by the main stage at 700 Seabreeze Blvd.

She said one person was transported to the hospital with a serious injury, but was expected to survive and the other person received superficial injuries.

Two people were detained. No other information was immediately available.
