Kentucky Kingdom was the site of a small demonstration this weekend. Protesters, including former employees and park supporters, came out to take issue with the park's closure.
The Six Flags company decided to close the facility in February as it is in bankruptcy. Hundreds of seasonal jobs were lost when Kentucky Kingdom closed.
"Kentucky's unemployment is 10 percent. I think the time to act is now. The further we want the more these rides set idle, the worst it's going to be for a new owner to come in. We need to act now," protester Tim Childers said. Unemployment in the Metro area is more than 12 percent.
Last year, Six Flags posted a net loss of $194 million.
The Kentucky Fair Board has been looking for a new company to operate the park.
Change the scheme, Alter the mood! Electrify the boys and girls if you would be so kind!
I was in town over the weekend for an adjacent function, and managed to snap a few pics. I didn't know about the demonstration until after the fact; I'd assumed that small crowd was people who wandered away from the Kentucky Flea Market at the Expo Center.
