HAHIRA, GA (WALB) - Hahira will be buzzing with a big crowd Saturday for the annual Honey Bee Festival. Friday, vendors set up their tents along the streets in downtown Hahira.

Vendors from across South Georgia come to the festival to sell arts and crafts. One vendor said it gives him an opportunity to get out on the road, another said she likes to use the festival to help celebrate her son's birthday.

"It gets us out," said Rich Furlong, who is at the festival selling his stained glass art and wood carvings. "Like I said, it gets us out of town, let's us see different things. And, even though I'm local this is a nice little town. I love Hahira." Toni Lyn Davis is at the festival selling jewelry. "We usually come out here and just have a good time, kind of like a pre-celebration [for my son]," Davis said.

The festival continues through Sunday.
