Jubilant crowds packed Le Buzz, the Cobb County gay bar, July 29-30 for the second annual Marietta Rainbow Festival.
The event exceeded all expectations, said Johnathon Murphy, general manager of the bar located just outside the perimeter, who placed attendance as high as 4,000.
There was a kids' zone where drag queens interacted and performed for young children and their families on Saturday evening as well as packed bar with a long line to enter to watch the drag show later on Saturday night. A vendor space included local businesses as well as booths from Georgia Equality and AID Atlanta.
More than 75 artists performed over the weekend event and tentative plans for next year include possibly making the event a three-day festival including a parade.
