Picnic in the Park photos

The winning picnic, 'Wizard of Oz'. Here we see Dorothy (Shelley Smith) and Toto (Lily). A nice touch was the poppy-lined yellow brick road leading to their picnic table.

PICNIC IN THE PARK is in many ways the quintessential Savannah event: It’s outside, it involves lots of good food and drink, it celebrates the arts, and it’s free. Did I mention it’s free?

Because the event didn’t happen at all last year, a lot was riding on Sunday’s reincarnation of the longtime favorite event. Luckily, it was an outrageous success. Congrats to the Savannah Sinfonietta and the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs for making it happen, and to all who attended for answering the call.

I was one of the judges for the much-anticipated picnic competition, and I took some photos while we were walking around with our clipboards. For more photos from the evening go to my blog (click over on the lower right of the homepage under Blogs).
