MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Shelby County Commissioner Sidney Chism held his 15th annual Community Picnic Saturday afternoon.

Dozens of families came out to the Horn Lake Road Learning Center for a day of food, rides, live performances, and fun.

Children had a chance to enjoy rides, a petting farm, and face painting, while their parents got a chance to talk to those seeking to be leaders of Memphis and Shelby County. Chism, however, said the event is really about the kids.

"We've always had an open picnic, regardless of your political persuasion," said Chism. "At this picnic, you can come and pass your literature out and get to know the people, and move on toward trying to win your campaign."

The event ran from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m.
