“This year’s a little different from years past,” said Mike Williams, CEO of Lanier Islands, in an e-mail. “Labor Day weekend typically represents the end of the summer season for us at LanierWorld. However, due to popular demand and metro Atlanta’s temperate climate – we have decided to extend the season nearly a full month longer than we are historically open.” 

LanierWorld will remain open every weekend through Oct. 1
