Hahira Honeybee Festival 8 October 2011

Hahira’s biggest event of the year, the Hahira Honeybee Festival, filled up Main Street from the Middle School to Branch Street. Last year reputedly drew 25,000 people; I’m no expert, but I’ll be surprised if there weren’t at least as many this year.

Here are pictures in a slideshow and videos in a playlist.

No local parade is complete without the Georgia Bridgemen Lowndes High School band marching.

You can tell by all the City Council candidates that there’s an election going on. See if you can spot the mayor. (I didn’t, until I was revewing the pictures.) My favorite is this one of Charles Henry Hobrat.

The bees buzz in Hahira again this year. I went to the breakfast Monday at O-dark-thirty. Other events have already happened, but these are going on today:
Saturday Oct. 9th – 8 am until 6pm Arts & Crafts and Food Concessions. All day we will have events like The 5k Run, Century Bike Ride, Dog Show, Cloggers and other entertainment. There will also be a Kid’s Zone with lots of inflatables, a train ride, live pony rides, mountain climb and carousel.

Parade start time is 12:00 Noon. This is one of the largest parades in South Georgia. We have one of the largest high school bands in Georgia from Lowndes High School, The Georgia Bridgmen, Floats Of All kinds, Local Queens, City Officials, Our Senior Citizen, State Officials, and Lots and lots of Shriners and much more.
