The East Hills Council of Neighbors will be hosting A Gay Afternoon at Cherry Street Park on August 17. Described as “a neighborhood celebration of the spirit of inclusion and diversity that makes our community great,” the street party with music, education, beer and food is free and open to the public.

Food for the party will be provided by 3 Good Dogs who will also be providing gluten free options. Brewery Vivant will be pouring their Belgian brews. Both 3 Good Dogs and Vivant are part of the East Hills neighborhood. The brewery is located just east of the park. For anyone who’s ever been to the Fulton Street Farmers Market chances are you’ve seen Dog (who used to be a dog trainer and the name just stuck) serving up hot dogs.

The music lineup starts at 3:15 with Rachel Gleason and includes bands such as LVNMUZIQ, Jes Kramer, Lake Timber, Part Time Warriorz. It closes with The Potato Babies ending at 9:30.

Local nonprofit groups will have booths set up to educate and inform. For a complete list of participants you can refer to the facebook event page.

A Gay Afternoon will be held in Cherry Street Park at the corner of Eastern and Cherry on Saturday, August 17. The party starts at 3 and goes until 10 PM. All are welcome.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.
