Moultrie -- Hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world will pour into south Georgia this week for the 28th annual Sunbelt Ag Expo. More than twelve hundred exhibits are on display at Spence field in Moultrie.

It may be the best weather in Expo history. Perfect for the more than 1,200 exhibitors to show off their wares. "We’ve got an outstanding set of exhibitors to bring in the latest technology for our farmers to see and experience and take back and improve their bottom line," said Chip Blalock, Executive Director.

But you may have to wait in line to see some exhibits. "We have hundred of thousands of our closest friends from all over the world," said Blalock.

You may be drawn in for a line dance with Oscar the Robot. His purpose at Expo is to teach you about electrical safety. Along with Steve Talbott, of Georgia’s EMCs. "We try to make sure those folks know those hazard are there, so they can prevent injuries or deaths," he said.

Accidents that are often farm related. "When they see our demo, they'll be reminded that when they operate around our lines, they should take extra care."

And many people return to Expo every year, from all over the world. "I love it. I come back every year, because this is what I love, so I come back," said Visitor Chris Holland.

Sunbelt opens daily bat 8:30AM, and runs through Thursday.
