Chastain wraps gay-run arts fest year [photos]

When the gay couple who started Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces gets going, they don’t quit. The guys who gather gaggles of gays at parks all over town throughout the year did it again with last weekend’s Chastain Park Arts Festival.

All day on Saturday and Sunday, LGBT-inclusive vendors, art appreciators and park amblers took advantage of the short but lovely warm spell. In addition to hand-crafted artwork for sale, live music and food were on tap in the sprawling park.

We can’t wait to see what Patrick Dennis and Randall Fox do next. They’ve got 10 events already scheduled for next year.
