An annual affair for the LGBTQ community, Rey Lopez Entertainment’s Out in the Park at Six Flags Fiesta Texas brings together local drag talent and fan favorites from RuPaul’s Drag Race alongside roller coasters and thrill rides.

Representing the Alamo City this year will be the RLE Showgirls with a special tribute to late tejano icon Selena. The event is also a reunion of sorts for several contestants from season 10 of RPDR, including Blair St Clair, the Vixen, Yuhua Hamasaki, Kalorie Karbdashian-Williams, Vanessa “Vanjie” Mateo, Dusty Ray Bottoms, and Monét X Change. From Mateo’s early send-off, where she repeated the now-infamous phrase “Miss Vangie,” to Dusty Ray Bottom’s confession about what really happens in conversion therapy, the reality competition show remains as relevant and meme-worthy today as it was when it premiered a decade ago.

$51.99-$125, Sat Nov. 3, 7-11:55pm, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, 17000 I-10 W., (210) 697-5050, sixflags.com.
