It has been reported that this summer the city of Atlanta will bring back the once famous Freaknik street party. The new edition of the event will be a family friendly event. The annual spring break themed event was a huge gathering in Atlanta that grew in numbers from the early 80’s to the late 90’s. The event attracted people from all over the country. It was a massive party with drinking and partying.

Just about everyone who commented about the event on social media feels the new event should have a new name and leave “Freaknik” in the past. Read more of the story in the link below.
