The last event of the Memphis in May is Sunset Symphony. And each year they have a different featured artist that performs with the symphony for a set and this year's artist was KC and the Sunshine Band. A great way to end the events for the month. It is held at Tom Lee Park on the Mississippi river. I went for the first time last year. We left my house close to 3 with a vehicle full of six people and all the items needed for a picnic. I went with S, JF (her hubby), H, and S's parents. We had a great assortment of items to eat too.
This year we went prepared for rain. Last year a quick storm came up and most of the group got soaked while a couple of us were able to get under the second tarp. And we did get some rain and thunder during the Air Show.

I didin't get any good shots of the air show.
While we were setting up our spot H got a chocolate chip cookie. I think he enjoyed it.
There are several artist who play on the stage throughout the afternoon until the air show.
And the night ends with a firworks show over the Mississippi River. Which at one point I didn't think was ever going to start. KC and the Sunshine band didn't want to quit playing.
A great way to spend a Saturday afternoon with friends.
