A Getaway to Mississippi Without Leaving LA



    5 Falltacular Ways to Connect With Your Family
    Grab a blanket, your friends and family, and get away to Mississippi for the day in Elysian Park.

    If you can imagine yourself as one of the three splendid LA locals in the picture above, then the Mississippi Picnic in Elysian Park is your Sept. 11th destination.

    Aside from lounging picnic drinking, this event invites the people of LA to celebrate the music, food, arts and culture of Mississippi.

    Plan on feasting on Mississippi home-style fried catfish from Yazoo City, smoked BBQ from Tupelo and iced tea from McAlister’s Deli. Lazy Magnolia Brewing Company will serve up unique and tasty ice-cold micro-brew to also quench your thirst.

    Enjoy Southern music from both Mississippi artists and from LA local musicians with Mississippi roots.

    A $25 donation will cover the food, drink and music. The event can only hold 500 people, so get your tickets early.
