One of the Joys of living in Historic District Savannah has to be Forsyth Park (Savannah’s little local version of NYC’s Central Park). And our incredible lineup of fall festivals and celebrations just make me want to jump for joy all season long.
Last night, I attended Savannah’s Picnic in the Park, with a lineup of incredible music provided by the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra! I am SO fortunate to live in a city that was founded eons ago on the twin pillars of Art and Commerce.
Here’s my car packing and wagon-ing:
(Isn’t my Coexist bumper sticker cool? I’m not 100% sure what it means, but I figure it increases my Hipness Factor by a few points.)
Inside my cooler and picnic basket, I had basil lemonade, sandwiches, fruit, vegetable chips and humus, cookies, candles, the current issue of Oprah and a red fake bird.
Folks on the stage said there were between 15 and 20,000 folks in attendance. Idk. I didn’t count.
Here I am with Chewy (the mascot of Parker’s Convenience Stores–primary sponsor of the picnic).
And if you were so inclined, you could register your “picnic-ing” in a contest. Here are a few of the entries:
Then it got dark, and I lit (lighted?) my candles and listened to soul-freeing arias and music.
Shared fruit fun with new friends Donnie and Kinsey:
What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday evening and night. Thank you, Gorgeous Savannah.
