We start out on Friday, June 14th, with the Mississippi Night @ Atlanta Braves.
Come out to SunTrust Park as the Atlanta Braves take on the Philadelphia Phillies. Stay late as it is also a Friday night fireworks game! Tickets purchased through this site will be electronic tickets that are emailed out. Each seat purchased from this site will include a Braves collector's ball and koozie as well as a Mississippi Society of Georgia cinch pack to be distributed at the game.
Saturday, we will be headed back to Chastain Park in Buckhead from 10:30am to 3:00pm for the main event picnic. 105 W Wieuca Road Northwest, Atlanta, GA 30342 Please do not park in the Arts Center lot as they have their own activities that day! (And they know some mean old tow truck drivers!)
Catfish/chicken plates at the picnic will again be brought in and cooked up by Penn's. The plates include catfish, chicken, fried pickles, coleslaw, baked beans, fries, corn nuggets & hushpuppies! The Penn's order has already been placed, but we ordered a few extras (like a good southern host would) and they will be available for $25 Saturday. Lunch will be served 11:30 to 1:30. All of your favorites are back with free treats at the picnic! McAlister's is going to be back handing out their delicious cookies and sweet tea. Sugaree's is shipping in a little slice of Mississippi with their famous caramel cakes from New Albany, Mississippi! Your sweet tooth will be satisfied!
Make a donation and get an entry into the scholarship raffle prize drawings. Each $5 donation gets an entry and a $20 donation gets 5 entries. You could win a tv, a signed Dak Prescott Cowboys jersey (framed by Briarcliff Framing), or some of the other donated prizes including a handmade quilt by Jimmie Turnage! Other prizes are being announced on our Facebook page.
This year's entertainment will include some familiar faces as we welcome back The Shufflejunkies with some other surprise guest appearances. There will be a little something for everybody! This is a rain or shine event.
HelloFresh will be joining us and hosting a booth at the picnic. Stop by and see what great offers they might have to fit your needs.
Thanks to our school alumni associations, admission to the picnic is free. Many do not realize that we spend thousands in permit fees and bringing in authentic Mississippi food, entertainment, and goodies. We do this without any major corporate sponsorship. If you would like to become a sponsor and keep the picnic/weekend and scholarship going, please check out the Donate page.
