Another big crowd is expected in Moultrie this week for the 38th annual Sunbelt Ag Expo.

Organizers say the Expo brings in visitors to not only Moultrie but also the surrounding counties.

The director of the Expo estimates the three-day event will bring in about 20 million dollars for the south Georgia region.

While some are planning to camp out on the Expo grounds, others will be filling up hotels in Moultrie, Valdosta, Tifton and Albany.

"Just for the three days of the show, we fill up all the hotels and the restaurants purchase gas, within a 60 mile radius of Moultrie and Colquitt County," said Executive Director Chip Blalock.

The gates will open Tuesday at 8:30 a.m. in Moultrie.

Be sure to watch WALB's live coverage morning, noon and evening from the Sunbelt Expo.
