Event organizer Brad Lewis said this weekend is about celebrating freedom, unity and equality.

“We’re taking it to a whole new level. We’re in a new venue, from Centennial, to Piedmont Park,” Lewis said. “Which in my opinion is probably one of the best venues in Atlanta.”

Lewis told Atlanta News First the ongoing theme is the youth leading the way.

“I think it’s going to be an excellent opportunity for Atlanta’s biggest melting pot,” he said. “This even appeals to everyone because it’s about freedom.”
