Town celebrates annual onion festival

By WTOC Staff

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Today was the celebration of the 33rd annual Glennville Sweet Onion festival. It kicked off bright and early this morning with the traditional downtown parade.

Dozens gathered to watch the floats and marching bands go by. The festive day celebrates the harvesting of the famous Vidalia sweet onion crop.

Our own Sonny Dixon took  a bite of one as he, Wayne Dasher, and Oshja Anderson called the parade as it marched on by.
