CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

The Central Georgia Fair has come and gone, but its impact was still being felt around Crisp County Monday.

The fair brought people from Sumter, Dougherty, Turner and other counties to Cordele.

Five local businesses had food booths each night, all of which reported being overwhelmed with the money brought in from the fair.

The week-long fair is a huge event and money-maker for the local economy.

"You had five great days and great nights of things that economically boosted our community," said Sheriff Billy Hancock.

All the money raised goes to the Lions Club of Cordele.

Sheriff Billy Hancock estimates around 8,000 to 10,000 people attended last week.
