When Georgia’s Savannah State Fair is open, it’s still ‘a riot’
Savannah State fairgoers have an idea of how the Georgia State Fair will go from a free-standing structure with no crowds, to a crowd of tens of thousands.
That’s because the fair will open in 2019.
The next year, it will be a riot.
“This is going to be a state fair,” said Michael Tatum, a Savannah resident who will be driving from Washington to the fair.
“Theres a lot of people coming.
This is going on for more than the year.
Theres going to a lot going on.”
Tatum is part of a group of drivers who have been trying to get to the Savannah State Fairs every other week since it opened.
He said the state fair will become a state of mind.
“Youre going to get a lot more people,” he said.
Tatum said the traffic will get worse.
He told News24 that he expects traffic will increase because of the crowds.
The Georgia State fair is a big draw in Savannah, which is about 50 miles northwest of Atlanta.
Georgia State Fair 2017 was the second year in a row that the fair was the state’s top attraction.
Last year, the state awarded the state the prestigious Gold Medal of Excellence.
The first year of the state Fair in 2019 was also the first time that the state had not had a state flag in the sky.
In addition to the Georgia state flag, the Georgia flag of the United States will be flown in the grounds.
The Savannah StateFair was named for a plantation where slaves were used for cotton and wool.
The Fair will be open from Thursday to Saturday, but the crowds will be shorter, and the weather will be drier.
