Folks in southwest Georgia came out in large number of an annual November tradition.

The Mule Day parade in Calvary is a fan favorite. Bands, tractors and of course mules to part in a parade route. The festival is expected to bring in between 60,000 to 90,000 people to the town of 200.

Of course, there was plenty of good food to eat. The annual Mule show allowed the animals to compete in races and other competitions. This event gives everyone a chance to celebrate south Georgia.

"Being part of Mule Day and the community here in Calvary is very big thing that the Calvary Lions Club puts on every yea," said Lions Club member Mike Williams.

Havana resident Travis Maddox says he's been coming out to Mule Day since he was about ten and the event seems to get bigger and bigger each year.
