The annual Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair marks its 60th anniversary this year, offering up the family-friendly fun the event has become known for.

The fairway is full carnival rides, games, food vendors, live entertainment, livestock shows and much more. Today is the last day of fun, beginning at noon and ending at midnight. The ticket window will close at 10 p.m., and tickets are $10 at the gate, with children 5 and under getting in for free. 

Tonight's fair features Kori Spires and the High Voltage Band, performing Southern rock, country and more. Spires was named Female Artist of the Year in the 2020 Georgia Country Awards. Originally from South Georgia, Spires has been traveling with her band the past few years, developing a loyal and strong fan base.
