-- Lyft to make it easy for guests to spend Independence Day

in Atlanta’s iconic downtown neighborhood with special discount on rides --

ATLANTA—Atlanta’s not-to-be-missed 4th of July celebration will be in the Centennial Park District.

In the center of the district, Centennial Olympic Park will host a fireworks display--the only one in the city--and performances by Bobby Brown, Ann Nesby, CeCe Peniston and many others.

Surrounding the park, there’s plenty to see, do and eat within walking distance, so attendees are encouraged to spend the whole day – and even stay the night – in the Centennial Park District, and to snag a good spot early.

To make it super easy to get to all of the fun, Lyft is offering a 25 percent discount to anyone heading to the Centennial Park District between noon and 4 p.m. on July 4 and anyone leaving the district between midnight and 2 a.m. on July 5.

To apply the discount to their accounts, Lyft riders can visit or enter code CENTPARK17 into the promo section within the Lyft app before scheduling a ride. Lyft’s drop-off and pick-up location that day will be on Centennial Olympic Park Drive, just south of its intersection with Baker Street.
