Vidalia Onion Festival kicking off


The 36th annual Vidalia Onion Festival is in full swing. Thousands flocked to town to celebrate the world famous onion this weekend.

The weekend includes arts and crafts as well as plenty of onions fresh from the field as well as onion rings and blooming onions. Organizers say the community pulls together to give visitors a fun weekend.

"We couldn't do this without so many volunteers that get every part of the festival together and make it work," said Brad Hart, festival chairman.

The air show and other attractions continue through Sunday evening.
