The annual Rainbow Days at Six Flags Over Georgia announced today the dates for its 2013 event. The LGBT day at the theme park will take place Aug. 10, from 10 a.m. - 10 p.m.
Organizers hope to attract more than 3,000 to Six Flags for the event's fourth year.
Admission to the park will be available in price packages from $23 to $50. Some ticket plans will include everything from parking to an evening buffet and tickets to live stage entertainment. A portion of ticket sales will go to the Health Initiative, organizers also said.
The first gay-themed day at Six Flags Over Georgia was Pearl Day, which shut down amidst controversy after 2009 organizers were unable to contribute promised donations to three Atlanta beneficiaries of the event: Atlanta Pride, CHRIS Kids and Pets Are Loving Support. Organizers blamed low attendance, while some in the community blamed poor planning.
Led by different organizers, Rainbow Days stepped in to fill the gap in 2010 as an unofficial gathering of LGBT patrons, and leaders made clear the event wasn’t meant to be a replacement for the defunct Pearl Days.
Sponsors for this year's Rainbow Days includes Gayborhood, Coca-Cola, LivingSocial, Monster Energy Drink, Meak Productions, David Atlanta Magazine, GA Voice and Project Q Atlanta.
