The Statesboro-Bulloch County Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority to promote agribusiness as a top industry in Bulloch County and the region. The organizations will host the annual F1RST Friday Ag Night Out event on Friday, Oct. 7, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on East Main Street.
The community is invited to enjoy a family-friendly night in downtown Statesboro. Everyone can get an up-close view of farm equipment used by local farmers and purchased by local suppliers. Agriculture has a significant impact on our local economy. People can come and learn more about the Chamber's Ag partners and listen to some tunes from The Ripley’s. There will be a farm-themed costume contest for children ages 0-5 and 6-10.
The Chamber thanks Agri Supply of Statesboro, Ag Night Out presenting sponsor and Tidewater Equipment and Tutt Land Company, premier sponsors of Ag Night Out.
