OUToberfest 2010—a huge success

A lot was different about OUToberfest 2010. This is the first year the fest has been free and all-ages. Second, the fest was condensed to two days, Friday and Saturday. Those changes led to a huge turnout of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and straight folks that came for one thing: to celebrate diversity and unity in Mississippi.

The park was filled with hundreds of smiling faces from every walk of life. The crowd was, by far, the most diverse we’ve seen ranging from families, kids, teens, and tweens to seniors, young adults, and even a few Great Danes. Everyone had a great time with over 6 hours of live music, a space jump, art projects, vendors, organizations, and much more.
