Charlotte (left) and Caitlin walked through Kerrytown District in Ann Arbor, where about 1,000 attendeees soaked up more than the rain on Saturday at the 11th Annual OutFest. “It went well considering the weather,” said Jeremy Merklinger, president of the Washtenaw Rainbow Action Project. “Everybody was really happy with the set up and the way it looked.” Participants swayed to tunes from local rocker Barbara Payton and other performers. OutFest attendees also checked out several local vendors who set up booths in the Farmer’s Market parking lot. Those who braved the rain at OutFest were apologetic to volunteers of WRAP, who hosted the event. “The funniest thing: it actually seemed very smooth planning wise,” Merklinger said. “The only thing we can’t control is the weather.” BTL photo: Chris Azzopardi
