National Peanut Festival Preparations Have Begun

It is fall time, meaning the Peanut Festival is right around corner.

This is the 70th anniversary of the nation's largest Peanut Festival.

This year's theme is "Peanut Goes Platinum".

Easton Corbin will headline the main concert for the festival.

With all the finishing touches being placed on the fairgrounds, festival organizers say it will be the perfect homecoming for the Wiregrass.

James Etheredge, who is the president of the National Peanut Festival said, "Going back to those relationships, with people all those years, always, people always come home, This is a homecoming every year for people, people come from hundreds of miles away each year, because of the Peanut Festival."
