Organizers of the show couldn't be more pleased with how the finale unfolded on Saturday.

The 20th annual and final East Point Possums show is in the books and what a great time it was! Thank you to all who came out to East Point for one last night of #baddragdoinggood, and a very special thanks to all of the wonderful performers and amazing volunteers who came together to help us go out with a bang! Be on the lookout across our social media this week as we highlight a few of our favorite moments.

What a fun ride it's been. Enjoy photos from 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010. 

During the show, organizers also let loose with details of the opening of Lost N Found's new 4,000-square-foot drop in center that will allow the non-profit to better serve homeless LGBT youth. The organization said in March it was close to finding a home for the facility, which was housed in its 13,000 square-foot thrift store on Chantilly Drive off Cheshire Bridge Road. The new center, which Lost N Found hopes to eventually keep open 24 hours a day, is a quick drive from the thrift store.
