Plans made for Fiesta

August 28, 2004

Tifton- In a special press conference, members of the media got a taste of what the ninth annual Fiesta del Pueblo will be like.

Last year more than 15,000 people from 37 Georgia counties and 8 states attended the festival, and this year organizers expect even more to come.

"The mission is just to build a bridge between these communities, and I'm a great believer that you can build these bridges through culture, through traditions, through sharing food, and just good fellowship," says festival director, Liz Marti.

The festival will be held in Tifton's Fullwood Park Saturday, September 25th. It will last from 10 AM to 10 PM. Admission is free.
