Six Flags over Texas in Arlington is once again showing its Pride, with the newly-rebranded and revamped Out in the Park, co-hosted once again this year by Dallas Voice and the Arlington Convention & Visitors Bureau.

The event will take place at the theme park at 2201 E. Road to Six Flags St. in Arlington on Sept. 15, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. There is an exciting new addition to the fun this year with an all-you-can-eat catered picnic from 2 p.m.-4 p.m. at the park’s large pavilion located between the Texas Giant and the Titan. The meal will include grilled chicken fillet, potato salad, garden salad, dinner rolls, cookies, Coca-Cola soft drinks and iced tea — in other words, something for everyone.
