Toast to the Stars and Stripes at Georgia Aquarium's Red White & Brew Event

Experience Independence Day at the coolest location in the city

ATLANTA (June 5, 2013) – Celebrate the Fourth of July with a bang and a splash at Georgia Aquarium’s third consecutive Red White & Brew event on Thursday, July 4 beginning at 6 p.m. The celebration will be held in Georgia Aquarium’s magnificent Oceans Ballroom and on the Aquarium’s parking garage rooftop with the city’s best view of the Centennial Olympic Park firework show.

Spend summer’s favorite holiday sampling great beer, listening to live music from Yacht Rock Schooner and enjoying a classic All-American barbeque buffet provided by Wolfgang Puck Catering. Red White & Brew attendees can anticipate a “summer fun” themed silent auction and can also capture the patriotic memories with Team Artboy. Attendees will cap off the festivities by viewing the Centennial Olympic Park fireworks from Georgia Aquarium’s rooftop parking deck. This event is for ages 21 and up. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to ensure availability. Tickets are $55 per person in advance and $65 per person on July 3 and the day of the event.

Red, White & View, a second event, specifically for families with children, will also take place. Families interested in participating in Georgia Aquarium’s Fourth of July festivities are invited to view the Centennial Olympic Park firework show from the Aquarium’s parking deck rooftop starting at 7:30 p.m. Kids and parents alike can join the patriotic fun with a DJ, face painting, desserts provided by Wolfgang Puck Catering and Coca-Cola beverages all included in ticket prices: $15 for kids and $20 for adults. Guests are encouraged to bring chairs and picnic blankets to enhance the fun and maximize the viewing experience.
