What do you get when you mix hundreds of art and food vendors with the draw of the outdoors? A gaggle of Atlanta gays out for a weekend park stroll at the fall rendition of Festival on Ponce, that’s what.

The winning formula was back on full display on Saturday and Sunday, where Festival on Ponce spotlighted the gorgeous Olmstead Linear Park, which is enjoying the fruits of a $10 million renovation.
