The sound of good music filled Milan City Park for the first Southern Sunday Music Festival.

“Southern Sunday embraces our lifestyle in the south, culture, traditions,” event organizer Gregory Horton said.  “So we wanted to try our hand at doing a music fest on Labor Day.”

Southern Sunday featured music from all genres, from country to gospel.

“Listen to the music and I’m really enjoying it, and this is a wonderful day to come out,” Geneva Davis said.

“I love stuff like this…to get me out of the house more often,” Wise said.

“Love to come out and enjoy myself,”  Floyd Wise said. “Sit around in a nice cool comfortable evening like this. Have some fun and eat some nachos.”

The event organizer says having such a variety of music, food and a car show was a way to attract people from all walks of life.
