Akron couple at center of Cedar Point wedding controversy

Associated Press

SANDSUSKY: Cedar Point is canceling a wedding contest after a gay couple organized a protest against the promotion.

Cedar Point initially limited the contest to male and female couples because it said state law doesn’t allow gay couples to legally marry in Ohio. A spokesman says the park decided to cancel the event once it started to take on political undertones.

The amusement park that sits along Lake Erie in Sandusky had planned to select 13 couples to get married there on Friday the 13th in September.

A gay couple from Akron told The Sandusky Register that they wanted to enter until seeing the rules. They then asked people online to contact the park in hopes of getting the rule changed.
