The National Peanut Festival kicks off today in Dothan. The ten-day-long fair celebrates peanut farmers in Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.
The event features rides, agricultural displays, and musical performances from the likes of Corey Smith, Michael Ray, .38 Special, Brett Young and many more. Organizers expect at least 180,000 people to attend over the course of the festival. Ticket sales have been doing very well, at least partly due to a favorable weather forecast.
