Gays with dogs and gays with painted dog faces enjoyed leisurely strolls through art, food and music in Olmstead Linear Park for a gay-helmed arts festival on Saturday and Sunday.
Just a week after Pride in the park, gay men and lesbians were ready for more outdoor fun. They were among the throngs that got out of the house to see what the cooler weather brought to the Fall Festival on Ponce. Randall Fox and Patrick Dennis, the gay park lovers who run Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces, rolled out the green space carpet in their lineup of a dozen similar events around town this year.
Once again, we were there, just like our visits to two Piedmont Park Arts Fests, the gay hipster-filled Old Fourth Festival of the Arts, and Buckhead Arts & Crafts Festival. Click the links for more pics.
AFPC has just one more park trick up its sleeve this year. Chastain Park Arts Festival is Nov. 2-3.
