Mississippi Today joined the Mississippi Society of Georgia over the weekend to celebrate the Magnolia State’s bicentennial.

Saturday’s Mississippi Picnic in Atlanta’s Chastain Park was one of the society’s weekend activities saluting the state. The Mississippi Society began hosting summer events in 2010.

Mississippi Today social media coordinator Sereena Henderson captured scenes from the picnic in the photo gallery below.
