New exhibit at Southwest Georgia Fair

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A new attraction is drawing a lot of attention at this year's Southwest Georgia Regional Fair.

People are drawn to this exhibit because it takes you back in time.

If you want a history lesson, you can step inside a portable museum and see tools used in the pioneer days. If you are hungry, they have a homemade ice cream machine powered by mules, or you can chow down on some fresh cooked meat. Bottom line, this exhibit brings a different feel to the fair.

"We got a great old time show here, you are going to see cane workin', mule workin', you will see it all the old time. The way your great great great grandpa did it," said Michael Sandlofer, exhibit manager.

Sandlofer says they came to Albany because the exchange club does great work for our community. When he found out that a lot of revenue from the fair goes back to the community, he knew this would be a perfect fit for his exhibit.

"I thought it would be right for us to here to participate in such a great fair," said Sandlofer.

Sandlofer also told me his favorite part is meeting people and seeing them enjoy the fair.

A lot of people are out here enjoying the fair. It's open until midnight and is here through Sunday.
