Music festival brings jazz, country, and R&B to Perry

What to expect at the Perry Music Festival

Saturday in "the City Where Georgia Comes Together," thousands of people will be coming together for a musical experience. 

You can expect singing in several genres like country, blues, R&B, and jazz for the 7th annual Perry Music Festival.

The fun starts at noon at the Rotary Centennial Park in Perry on Saturday and ends at midnight. 

Many artists like Linda Gray- Barnwell say that you can't just sit while you see these performances.  

"It's high energy, you cannot just pat your feet," said Gray-Barnwell." We're going to have you moving!"

This is a free, family-friendly event that includes music and fun for the children. Also, six vendors will be on site.

They're expecting crowds of 2,500 people. That means you'll need to find somewhere to park. 

Public parking is located in three places:

-St. James CME Church

-Creekwood Park

-The Kids Village

Every 15 minutes, shuttles will pick people up at the three locations.  

Carl Lampkin says that you can bring items like blankets, tents, and coolers, but no alcohol or illegal substances. 

"It will be heavy security here. The Perry PD will be checking different bags," said Lampkin.

11 performers will take the stage.

Some of which are Oscar Sheppard, also known as "The Smooth One" and LGB , just to name a few.
