Now that the 2014 Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair is over, here are some photos to help you relive the week that was. And judging by the attendance, many of you were there at least once.
Amusements of America, which provides the midway, brought new rides, including the Swing Tower, Zero Gravity and Disco.
There were booths featuring livestock and agricultural products, crafts and educational projects by area students, and many vendors.
Of course, there were the pancakes and sausage — a must-have for anyone attending the fair whose diet allows such indulgence. And if you just can’t bear to leave those foods behind, 100 percent pure Georgia cane syrup is made right by the pancake-and-sausage booth, and next to the Statesboro Kiwanis Club’s other major food attraction, the pulled-pork barbecue.Oh, and we can’t forget the weather. Fair chairman Walter Pease said the Kiwanis Club ordered the crisp, autumn temperatures and clear skies for “fair week,” and Mother Nature certainly lived up to her end of the bargain.
The fair is a major fundraiser for the Kiwanis Club. Proceeds benefit a number of community groups and causes supported by the club.
