            A Hill Country Picnic Retrospective

            OXFORD TOWN  – The tunes and weather were smoking hot — but the libations and patrons were totally cool last weekend at the Hill Coutry Picnic in Marshall County. Oxford Town contributing photographer Mike Stanton braved both to help, once again, archive one of Mississippi’s favorite festivals. Turn to Page 7 in Oxford Town No. 987  to check out some of Stanton’s great shots from Saturday night’s picnic jam (Picnic MC and Oxford Town Columnist Jim Dees pictured here). NMHCP gets bigger and better every year and next year promises to be yet another hoedown blast. We think we speak for everyone when we say “Keep ’em coming” and kudos to picnic organizers for a great weekend.
