Onion festival celebrates 40 years
BY KELSEY DAENAN

Glennville's Sweet Onion Festival, glennvillesweetonion.com

The Glennville Sweet Onion Festival is celebrating its 40th year in downtown Glennville on May 14. The events will kick off with a 5K race, followed by the Glennville Sweet Onion Parade and a day full of arts, crafts, food and entertainment at the State Farmers Market on Highway 301 South. Family-favorite activities include the World Championship Turtle Race and 30 local artists performing at the Glennville City Auditorium.

The festival draws more than 6,000 people each year to celebrate Tattnall County as the state's top-producing county for sweet Vidalia onions. Admission is $5 per adult and $3 per child. For more information and to view the schedule of events, visit glennvillesweetonion.com or call (912) 213-3331.
