Ah, the joys of living in Downtown Raleigh! This past Saturday was the ninth annual Out! Raleigh festival on Fayeteville St. It was great to see lots of LGBT expressions of joy and freedom, along with prom girls crossing the street, folks taking wedding photos and of course, a sighting of one of our famous Raleigh personalities, Tucker the cat (find him on Instagram @oakcitykitty).

It is always a great feeling to get outside and see lots of dogs and the people attached to them enjoying what the city has to offer.
