Moultrie Hosts Annual Spring Fling

By  | 

A beautiful day was setting the stage for Moultrie's Fourth Annual Spring Fling and Backyard BBQ. Downtown was completely closed off so vendors, entertainment, and crafts could be set up for all to enjoy.

Amy Johnson, a Moultrie resident, commented, "Downtown is the heart of the community, and so many towns have taken for granted their downtowns."

It wouldn't be South Georgia without a BBQ cook-off.

Robbie Costin has been cooking with his buddies for twenty years and is pretty confident they have what it takes to win.

"Well, we've won as many as four trophies in one day out of 16, so we feel pretty good, haven taken a quarter of the prizes away."

So if you over indulge on all the tasty food, head on over to the tent with the free health screenings.

Neali McRae with Colquitt Regional said, "We wanted to reach out to the community to make our presence known and also we want the community to be aware of what Colquitt Regional offers and be sure to help the community to be a little healthier."

"It's outstanding how we get everyone to come. They see all their old friends, same cooking teams every year, the same vendors, it keeps the community together," commented Costin.

Good food and good fun were all the makings for a perfect Spring Fling.
