Peanut Proud to bring fun, good food to Blakely, GA on Saturday, March 28

bandThe Peanut Proud Festival is an annual celebration that honors the peanut industry and what it means to our Southwest Georgia community.

The all-day festival creates an experience like no other, on March 28th, from 10:00 am to 11:00 pm on the Courthouse Square in Blakely, GA. Music, food, fun and dance brings together our citizens and their families, our local businesses, our leaders and our respected peanut farmers.

The day includes free concerts throughout the day, the Peanut Proud Parade, a kid zone full of activities for the young goobers, a 5k Run and Fun Run for those of you that are full of energy, arts and craft vendors with one of a kind items and the much loved Street Dance to close out the night.  The Peanut Proud family vine grows longer every year as it is draws thousands of not-so-local visitors and vendors. Join us, Saturday, March 28th, 2015, as we honor the peanut and our farmers!
