LGBTQ Atlantans roamed through Piedmont Park after the Atlanta Pride parade on Sunday despite some pesky rain.
It's an annual tradition for crowds to flood the park to check out the vendor booths, grab food and drinks and take in the entertainment on three different stages.
The Pride festivities began the previous Thursday with Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms' Pride reception in Buckhead, followed by the kickoff party at the Georgia Aquarium and the kickoff afterparty at Heretic on Friday, DJ Rosabel at the Coca-Cola Roxy and the Electric Circus party at District on Saturday and the parade on Sunday.
