Georgian festivals enhance tourism of the south

Published on : Friday, April 21, 2017

Georgian festivalsFunnel cakes, fried gator on a stick, arts and crafts, bouncy houses, pony rides, live music and crowded streets — hometown festivals.

The festivals and celebrations say a lot about a community. They reflect its character and help to create a brand eventually. In the Sunlight Project coverage area — Valdosta, Thomasville, Tifton, Dalton, Moultrie and Milledgeville, Ga., along with Live Oak, Jasper and Mayo, Fla., and the adjoining counties — there is no dearth of celebrations that talks about specialties like writhing rattlesnakes, magnificent flowers or busy honey bees, history and heritage of each town and county.

To add more to it, it could even be an old dilapidated corn mill or little red wagons. Besides, it might be Civil War battles or a downtown square lighting that dates back to the times of Great Depression.

No matter what a city or county selects to celebrate on, fun and sense of belonging to a place is the main outcome of observing festivals. Side by side, they also boost local economy with revenues and providing the locals a chance to bond over a shared identity.


Though there are many festivals, some of the highlights found in the SunLight Project coverage area are Tift County, Colquitt County. Lowndes County, Thomas County and others.
