TIFTON, Ga. (WALB) - ABAC’s Georgia Museum of Agriculture has announced that it has no plans for the Fourth of July holiday this year.

According to Garrett Boone, the museum's director, it remains closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic.

He said because of that, there will be no fireworks event next weekend.

“We’re currently still closed for operations. So, at the current time we, unfortunately, don’t have plans for an event on July Fourth,” said Boone.

Visitors to the museum are taken back in time to the 19th century.

Formerly known as the Agrirama, ABAC’s Georgia Museum of Agriculture has been a staple in the Tifton area since July 4, 1976.

Boone thanks the community for their support and said he hopes the museum will re-open soon and continue for many years to come.
