SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - The theme for the 2019 Picnic in the Park event has been announced.
At a news conference Tuesday morning, the Savannah Philharmonic, the City of Savannah and Enmarket introduced this year’s theme: “Color Your World with Music.”
“What we envision are picnic venues just saturated with vivid colors as we perform the music. The guests will be embraced by all the beautiful colors surrounding the venue,” said Terri O’Neill, Savannah Philharmonic, Executive Director.
They’ll be surrounded by fellow music lovers. The free outdoor concert regularly attracts almost 20,000 spectators. It’s a signature event for the Philharmonic and for the City of Savannah.
“People come from all over - inside Savannah, outside of Savannah. They all come together and have a great time,” said Savannah Mayor, Eddie DeLoach. “Whenever we say Savannah is the centerpiece of the region, this is an example of that centerpiece of the region. It’s really about the music and expanding the music to give everyone the opportunity to experience orchestral music."
The Picnic in the Park event will be at Forsyth Park on Sunday, Oct. 6.
