Picnic with the Pops, Lexington, Ky.
This past Saturday, I intended to enjoy two of Lexington's great annual functions. Regrettably, I only made it to one (note: the Woodland Arts Fair is not the subject of the post. I made it last year... and it is an awesome event that I have already put on my 2011 calendar!). I did, however, make it to Picnic with the Pops (also regrettably, I neglected to take my camera!).

It was my second Picnic with the Pops. This year, the Lexington Philharmonic performed many great pieces while Cirque de la Symphonie performed acrobatic marvels to the music. It was beautiful (Keeneland hosted the event, their first as the Horse Park couldn't host in anticipation of the WEG). For more, you should read Rich Copley's great review.

As I mentioned, I forgot to take my camera and I ignored my iPhone. Fortunately, LFUCG Councilmember Doug Martin (@DougMartin10th) OK'd my using the picture above (from his iPhone and both our apologies for quality!). His vantage point showed off our table - the one with the colorful spray 'candles' on the right  - which was decorated. And our costumes matched! I'm Glad to not have an incriminating flickr link!
