Grill At The Cherokee Picnic!

Whether you’re a seasoned local, a newcomer or maybe thinking of relocating to the Georgia area, then this is for you. On October 19-20, 2007, Canton, Georgia will be making history by celebrating its First Annual Cherokee Pignic. With any luck, this may become a regular yearly event.

The main drawing card at the Pignic is a professional cook-off by the Kansas City Barbeque Society as they compete for prizes totaling $10,000. Amateur chefs are welcome to compete in the ‘Back Yard Burner" competition, with a total prize purse of $1,200 as well as an opportunity to win the prestigious ‘Lick Your Lips’ people’s choice award.

The fun begins on Friday, October 19, 2007 with the following events:

Halloween Costume Contest - 7:30 pm: A costume contest open to children 10 years of age and under, with a chance to win some great prizes.

Film on the Farm - Charlotte's Web - 8:30 pm: Bring your blankets or lawn chairs and cozy up for a free outdoor movie under the stars. Food vendors will be available on site. Please no picnics or pets.

Saturday, October 20, 2007 - Get ready for a full day of fun from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm including:

Music and Dancing: You won't be able to resist jumping on the dance floor when you hear the foot stompin bluegrass music with our lively square dance caller.

Entertainment on the City of Canton Stage: There will be non-stop live entertainment from 10:15 to 4:00 pm.

Entertainment on the Kiddie Corral Stage - 11:00 am: Make sure you check out the special performances just for the kids.

The Pignic is located at Heritage Park, just minutes from I-575 and Historic Downtown Canton. As the parking on-site is limited, there will be free shuttles running to and from designated parking areas all over Canton.
