CUMMING, Ga. — The Cumming fairgrounds has seen it’s fair share of changes recently – none more noticeable than the new pedestrian bridge that goes over Castleberry Road.

“We had a lot of traffic problems with people coming across the street,” Cumming Mayor Troy Brumbalow said. “It backs traffic up, and we were scared of somebody getting hit. So I put in this cool bridge and it will make everything a lot more convenient for the people coming to the fair, but safer as well.”

There’s also a new ticket booth where people will pay the $7 admission fee after crossing over the new bridge. Kids 10 and under get in free.

This year marks the 25th anniversary for the fair, which Brumbalow says is one of the largest in the state.

“It's come a long way from its roots, and we're just happy to continue that tradition,” he said. “During the two concerts which are on the 8th and the 10th, myself and the council, just to show our appreciation, we've got a bunch of commemorative 25th anniversary t-shirts that we’re going to be throwing out to the crowd each night to just tell them ‘thank you, we appreciate you for coming and having a good time.’”

The fair runs from October 3rd to 13th. Gates open during the week at 4 p.m. and even earlier on the weekends.
