Twin Oaks Picnic Area, Kelley Park

Travel back to the simpler times of 1950s America. Join GBACG for an old-fashioned family style picnic. Bring your own picnic lunch and your best Jello recipe for our contest. We will have games of skill, such as egg and spoon races, a sack race, and a three-legged race.

Won't you join us? Get your tickets now!


This is the perfect opportunity to indulge in that 50's dress you've been ogling, or to pop on your favorite bowling shirt. Requested costume is anything from 1950-1960. Costumes are required, but as always do not have to be perfect period or movie replicas. Wear something comfortable!
