- Georgia State Fair Celebrates 170 Years: It’s a tradition that began way back in 1846, when James K. Polk was President of the United States.  Much has changed in the past 170 years – but the Georgia State Fair continues to entertain crowds.


This year’s Georgia State Fair takes place at Atlanta Motor Speedway from September 30 through October 9.  This year’s attractions include live music from country music star John Michael Montgomery, a petting zoo, butterfly encounter, and Banana Derby (which involves monkeys riding dogs!).  All concerts are free with admission, which is ten bucks for adults 13 and older, five bucks for youth between the ages of 5 and 12, and free for kids four and under.  Ride wristbands are $25 for all ages.


Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken spent the morning at Atlanta Motor Speedway, getting a taste of the fair with “America’s Got Talent” finalist Rhinestone Roper and more.       




"Halloween Wars Season 6,"  is kicking off on the Food Network and this season a local man from Rome, GA is joining one of the teams as an expert pumpkin carver.  Jeremy Smith says his life changed in October of 2012 when his wife asked him to carve a pumpkin for her Pre-K class, he was hooked after that and is now excited to compete in "Halloween Wars Season 6."   For more information click here.
