Max, dozens of dogs parade through Six Flags in Halloween costumes

- Max and a dozen of his friends got a chance to visit Six Flags Over Georgia on Saturday for the 4th Annual Spooky Walk-N-Wag Dog Halloween Costume Walk and Parade.

It is a part of the park's annual Fright Fest event. Over 120 dogs dressed in their favorite Halloween costumes and dog owners donated more than 600 pounds of dog food, which will be donated to a local shelter.

Prizes were awarded for best costume, most unique costume and best home-made costume. Fright Fest at Six Flags Over Georgia runs every weekend, Friday through Sunday and October 30 and 31.

Fright Fest features 20 spine-chilling attractions, including 8 new haunted mazes and walkthrough scare zones.

“Operation Max” was established last year when FOX 5 began a partnership with Canine Assistants, which is a non-profit organization based out of Milton, Georgia. They pair 75-100 dogs annually with people who have difficulty with mobility, epilepsy, Type 1 diabetes as well as dogs in pediatric hospitals and rehab centers.  

Max’s journey began on October 23, 2016, the day he was born! The Canine Assistants family welcomed Max and the rest of his siblings as part of the “American Hero” litter. All eight puppies were given patriotic names. Max was named in honor of former U.S. Senator Max Cleland, a disabled U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War.
