While the Vidalia Onion Museum can't help but snag visitors to this weekend's big festival, supporters hope it will become a year-round destination. Near Southeastern Technical College off the U.S. Highway 280 "Strip" between Lyons and Vidalia, the museum will hold its opening celebration Friday at the start of the Vidalia Onion Festival, which includes a street dance Friday evening, and an air show, carnival and other events through Sunday. Visitors can tour the museum beginning Friday.
