Ten closed its parking lot and blew the doors off by partying all over last weekend with its days-long Stonewall Pride Block Party.
Proving that its event last year – hosting the Sunday Funday patio party as part of Peach Party – could go even bigger, Ten this year expanded its efforts into three days of events with eight DJs and made it a block party. The event made it clear that although Atlanta Pride’s official celebration isn’t until October, June won’t pass by without a proper rainbow celebration.
The official Peach Party portion of the weekend took place Sunday afternoon with DJ Josh Whitaker. The weekend, which started Friday evening, also included DJs Mike Pope, Daryl Cox, Calvin, Rob Reum, Robert Ansley and Kraxx.
