Blend some toe-tapping country and folk music with an old-fashioned picnic menu from the cooks of the Peabody Historical Society, place musicians and food under the trees at Peabody City Park from 6 to 8 p.m. on Aug. 29, and you’ll have a perfect end-of-summer event — Shindig at the Park.
Music by the McKinney Sisters, Bennie Holtsclaw, and Rodney Bates is being billed as folk music, but will include a bit of bluegrass, country, and cowboy tunes.
The menu will be pulled pork sandwiches on a bun, baked beans, potato salad, and homemade ice cream. Serving will begin at 6 p.m. and music starts at 6:30.
“We like the idea of celebrating our park from time to time,” historical society president Marilyn Jones said. “And music and food are always a good combination. As usual the summer has been busy with activities and this is a chance to slow down a bit and enjoy a nice evening with friends and acquaintances.”
There is a $10 charge for the meal and participants are reminded to bring lawn chairs.
