Possum Picnic to be held September 25-26


    front porch logoThe Montgomery County Front Porch Stage proudly presents the 10th annual Possum Picnic September 25-26 at the Front Porch Stage on the courthouse lawn.
    The annual event is the lone fundraiser event for the Front Porch Stage, who has provided free musical entertainment every Saturday from May through October for the community.
    Chef Janet Capua will return once again to create the tasty healthy box lunches that will be sold Friday and Saturday. Preorders are welcome and volunteers will deliver an order of four or more lunches in the downtown area. Chef Capua was named an honorary Possum Queen last year in honor of her contributions to past picnics.
    The annual Possum Parade will begin at 6 p.m. and proceed around the square. The parade features “Has Beens” and “Almost Wases” as former Possum Queens and contestants put on their possum best for the procession.
    After the parade the reigning Possum Queen, Donna Wilburn, will crown the 2016 Possum Queen.
    After the coronation, Amy Garland Angel and Mark Currey will perform on the Front Porch Stage.
    Door prizes will be awarded and there will be a raffle and silent auction Saturday.
