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).

    The City's survey on what to do with the Civic Center is in some ways an example of their mode of cart-before-the-horse thinking. The issue of the Civic Center's future should have been settled long before the plans for the new Arena were this far along.
