Gay Atlanta often shortens the name Blake’s on the Park to “Blake’s” for simplicity sake, but during Pride, it’s the “Park” that makes it so ideal for a little extra merriment just steps away from the festival.
In addition to daytime fun while the park is still popping, the nightly shows and specials kept the Pride atmosphere going well into each night. As our photos attest, Blake’s shook Pride every which way to loose.
Join them each weekend for more of the same, from cocktail hour through Celestial Friday, from afternoon delight to Glitterbomb Saturday, and from parade madness to Midtown Rouge on Sunday.
