Picnic in the Park 2015
Thousands of local residents and out-of-town visitors braved Sunday's gloomy weather forecast to attend the largest outdoor cultural event in Savannah at Picnic in the Park on October 4th. Presented by the Savannah Philharmonic and the City of Savannah Cultural Affairs Department, this free annual event featured live concert performances throughout the day in Forsyth Park from local bands, choral and orchestral students. Picnic-goers wer encouraged to go big and create fun displays to go along with this year's "Hollywood in the Park" theme in hopes of winning the Best Picnic contest hosted by Parker's Convenience Stores. A memorable, two-hour performance by the the Savannah Philharmonic topped off the evening as they filled the air with popular movie scores including the crowd favorite, Harry Potter.
