TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

Hundreds of people showed up for a true Native American experience Saturday at the Georgia Museum of Agriculture.

It was an afternoon and evening full of traditions of the Native American culture, including cane grinding and syrup making.

Kids also rode along the Vulcan steam train.

Director of the Georgia Museum of Agriculture Garrett Boone said they've had this event for the past 40 years, and combined routine activities with new ones. 

"A little throwback with the cane grinding in the evening as they used to here, and combining that with a relatively new event which is Go Native Now," said Boone.

Kids experienced Native American dancing around the bonfire with Go Native Now.
