The annual Picnic in the Park is set for this Sunday, Oct. 6, in Forsyth Park featuring the Savannah Philharmonic.
A City spokesperson says that due to weather forecasts, "If it is raining or appears to be a strong chance of rain for 7:15 p.m., Picnic in the Park will be moved to the Trustees Theater on Broughton Street for a free concert with the Savannah Philharmonic. Please watch for announcements Sunday afternoon."
The theme of this year’s Picnic in the Park is “Celebrate the Arts.” Picnickers are encouraged to incorporate the visual arts, music, theater, literature, film and dance into their picnics. Those who enter the picnic contest will compete to win an assortment of prizes.
