Six Flags Over Georgia had a 1,000-person snowball fight with fake snowballs planned. That is, until real snow had something to say.

Six Flags cancels massive snowball fight due to ... real snow

OK, how do we say this?

Ummm, so, Six Flags in Austell had this 1,000-person snowball fight with fake snowballs planned for Saturday, right? But when real snow blanketed metro Atlanta with the real stuff it got real really fast.

And so, Six Flags announced on Twitter that the Cobb County amusement park would not open Saturday and reopen Sunday.

Snow Mountain also met the same, ironic fate.

The Six Flags tweet came at 1:17 a.m., about 12 hours before the event was supposed to occur.

And it really wouldn’t matter because the Georgia Department of Transportation is still asking folks to remain off the roads

If this ruins your Saturday plans, spend some time relaxing by looking at these pictures of babies and pets from around metro Atlanta seeing snow for the first time yesterday.
