2010 Picnic

Atlanta's Mississippi in the Park 2010

We returned to Chastain Park in Buckhead on Saturday, June 26, 2010 for the second installement of Mississippi in the Park - Atlanta. The format was changed to make admission free for the event. Ken Aiken and crew came over from Mississippi and fried up some delicious catfish plates. Coca-Cola once again provided sodas and water at no charge. McAlister's was there handing out their delicious cookies and sweet tea. New this year, Sugaree's shipped in a little slice of Mississippi with their famous Caramel cakes from New Albany, Mississippi!

The 2010 entertainment lineup included 3 bands. We started out the day with the bluegrass & gospel music of Homegrown who have become a picnic regular. Then we danced the afternoon away to the sounds of blues artist, Bobbye Doll Johnson. The day wrapped up with the unique style of The Electromatics combining Blues, Jazz, Funk, with Rhythm and Blues. Each artist is linked to their webpage below for those that missed the event to get a little taste of what they missed.

Thank you for supporting the Mississippi Society of Geogria!
