Check out Google's rainbow-colored map directions honoring Atlanta Pride

If you need help with directions during Atlanta Pride weekend, Google Maps will get you where you're going with flair.

Directional indications have been customized in rainbow colors.

The 47th annual event is being held in Midtown and Piedmont Park this weekend, the AJC's Nelson Helm reports.

Given the recent mass shooting spree in Las Vegas, authorities are taking every precaution to ensure everyone's safety.

Atlanta Police Department spokesman Carlos Campos told Helm that the department will have both on- and off-duty officers at this weekend’s events to ensure “visibility and security,” as well as the ability to “respond to any crisis.”
