Sunbelt Ag Expo moves into 2nd quarter century

October 15, 2004

Moultrie- People from all over the world are in South Georgia this time of year every year. They're not here to see the latest tourist attractions; but rather to see the latest technology.

For the next few days people are crowding Spence field in Moultrie for the Sunbelt Ag Expo.

There is even a hot air balloon at Expo.

Governor Sonny Perdue compares Expo to Disneyland, with high-tech tractor instead of roller coasters. Sunbelt pumps about $35 million into the South Georgia economy.

The Expo started in 1978 with 410 exhibitors, and that number has tripled in the intervening years. Spence Field gates will reopen at 8:30 Wednesday morning, and the show ends on Thursday.
