Burlap Buddies generates excitement for Peanut Festival

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Sylvester is already getting in the spirit for the annual Peanut festival.

Burlap Buddies are showing up around town.

They are peanut-shaped characters made out of burlap to promote the festival.

A local business came up with the concept.

The Sylvester Worth County is selling the burlap buddies and they're going fast. 

"We're doing them to kind of support the peanut festival. All the proceeds go to benefit the peanut festival.And we're encouraging businesses to take the peanuts and buy them and hang them on their door to show support for the peanut festival," Ashley Miller said.

The Festival kicks off October 16th.
