National Fairgrounds a win-win for Middle Georgia

There are a lot of things about the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter some could take issue with. Macon natives still smart that the facility was built in Perry off Interstate-75 instead of a muddy field east of Interstate-475 in Macon. It could also be said that the National Fair, first held in 1990, was the death blow to the Georgia State Fair held at Central City Park. Now the fairgrounds need some tender loving care and it’s going to take all hands on deck to make sure the fairgrounds gets what it needs. All area lawmakers should present a full-court regional press during the next budget cycle of the General Assembly.
