While most of you transplants never experienced the joys of Freaknik, I’m sure you’ve heard us ATLiens reminisce over the event quite often. Most of us have fond memories
of the small lil picnic that started near the campus of the AU center, while there are those of you who based your decision to move to the “A” on the joys you experienced of the massive “Freak-fest” that the small lil picnic evolved into.
There’s been a lot of talk about the return of Freaknik in 2010 after news outlets discovered a website promoting the event. The site says that the event is planed to return to Atlanta this April, but there’s no permit application and city officials don’t expect the event to happen.
