Donalsonville, GA (WALB) - Despite the demonstrations many Seminole County families still participated in their annual tradition. A parade kicked the day off in Donalsonville.

Floats from many of the businesses and organizations traveled down streets packed with families. Many of the children there got an early start on Halloween and satisfied their sweet tooth. The parade was followed by the Harvest festival at Seminole County Middle school.

"We sponsor this festival every year during the third weekend in October to celebrate our number one industry which is agriculture. We have vendors from through out the Southeast and have lots of food from funnel cakes to alligator," said Seminole Chamber of Commerce President, Brenda Broom.

The location of the Harvest Festival was changed this year from downtown Donalsonville to Seminole County Middle school. Officials say they made the change because it was a larger vicinity.
