Rainbow Days at Six Flags Over Georgia

LGBT crowds will gather Saturday, Aug. 10, at Six Flags Over Georgia for the fourth annual Rainbow Days at the popular amusement park. While the park will be open to the general public, Rainbow Days gold ticket holders can also access special entertainment and dining.

“We're most excited about our new sponsors, all of our new attendees as well as the old ones, the commitment ceremonies and of course the unification of the LGBT community,” says Carmen Smith, managing partner of Atlanta Premier Events Group, which produces Rainbow Days with presenting sponsor Gayborhood.

The goal of the event is to offer a fun-filled day for LGBT attendees while also sending a message about unity and diversity, and organizers hope attendance will top 3,000.
