The Georgia National Fair added a new concert to its schedule. The Georgia Jam Concert will feature Colt Ford, Corey Smith and Rehab on Oct. 15. The Jane Dear Girls will open for Blake Shelton on Oct. 8.
At the monthly Georgia Agricultural Exposition Authority board meeting, Bob Irwin, chief operating officer, announced that visitors to the fairgrounds for Houston County high school graduations exceeded 24,000.
In other business, the board approved exploring a partnership between the fairgrounds and Perry Convention and Visitors Bureau to buy two touch-screen kiosks to better help visitors at the fair and other events throughout the year.
