Picnic in the Park photos 

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).

  • Editor's Note: Fire Fee = Tax cut for the wealthy?

    Because the City bundled the Fire Fee with a one-mill rollback of property tax—equal to roughly eight percent — some affluent homeowners will actually get a tax cut out of the whole deal. While, you guessed it, those closer to the bottom will carry even more of the burden.
