More than 100,000 people turned out for Calvary's 38th Annual Mule Day.
Festivities included a mule show, parade, and more than 400 vendors.
All to honor the vital role mules played in developing Georgia's agriculture industry.
Some were used for mining, others for transporting cotton and sugar.
"The mule was what power we had years ago to plow, just make crops and it's the start of agriculture," said Bob Maxwell, the Mule Day Chairman.
"It's just a great time to be out with other people and it's a beautiful day and there's so many things to do and see," said Jean Brinson, who came from Thomasville for the parade. "And we just enjoy the camaraderie with the people."
Other Mule Day activities included corn and cane grinding and syrup cooking.
The festival is always held the first Saturday of November.
