The furry fun party Furball returned to the Heretic on Friday, a year after the popular event that got its start in New York City came south for the winter.

Local favorite DJ Sean Mac warmed up the crowd of bears and more before DJ Ben Baker kept the dance vibe going into the early-morning hours. Furball creator Joe Fiore promised gay Atlanta a fun night.

“Furball philosophy is that everyone can be sexy and have fun. This is what makes Furball a great night out of fun and dancing,” he told us ahead of the event.

Fiore delivered again.
