Great food and music has always been a part of the Jimmie Rodgers
Festival and the traditional Pickin' in the Park.

"This is just a fantastic way to celebrate the Father of Country Music,"
said organizer Betty Lou Jones.

Over the years, one of the main attractions has been the classic car show. This year over 100 different vehicles were on display.

Something new to this year's festivities was the barbecue cookoff, a prelude to Memphis in May.

The excitement included live music to cap off a huge party Saturday night.

WTOK-TV is a title sponsor of the Jimmie Rodgers Festival.
