HAHIRA, Ga. (WTXL) - This weekend closed out the 37th annual Hahira Honey Bee Festival.

Saturday was the final day of the festival, which attracted an estimated 25,000 people to downtown to enjoy vendors, music and a parade.

The 37-year-old festival brings people from around Georgia and surrounding states to the town of under 4,000 people.

Other than fun, the festival raises about $7,000 for local schools, food banks and the sheriffs youth ranch.

The chairman of the HoneyBee Festival says it's amazing that such a small city can host such a big event.

Sot Lana Hall, chairman, HoneyBee Festival: "People are friendly and people can't believe that a small town can put on an event like this, a festival. So we are just excited to share our little community and an opportunity to show new folks our merchandise here, our restaurants here, and kind show what we got to offer."
