STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

There’s a little bit of fall in the air, which means it's time for one of Bulloch County's biggest weeks of the year.

Besides the fun, the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair means financial support to a lot of good causes.

The fair draws people from Bulloch and every adjoining county and from as far as Savannah. Besides the attractions, it serves as a fundraiser for local charities and groups that serve the community.

The Kiwanis Club donates the proceeds back to those groups - to the tune of more than $100,000 a year - and support a range of good causes.

“You would be hard pressed to find a non-profit group in Statesboro/Bulloch County that isn't touched by the club and the fair. And it extends to every contiguous county through our support of 4-H clubs too,” said Kiwanis Club President Alex Grovenstein.

If you come out this week, you're helping a range of good causes and college scholarships by supporting the Kiwanis Club.

The fair also pays tribute to Bulloch County's rural roots as well.

“Agricultural heritage is a big part of this fair, has been for 55 years. We plan this fair all year long and agriculture is a large part of that,” said Grovenstein.

The fair continues every evening this week through Saturday night on Highway 67 South of Statesboro.
