The “High Energy” ride doubles as a thrill ride or a family ride as riders are able to control the spin of their ride vehicle to make it fast or slow.

The Coffee County Fair celebrated 162 years of family fun this month. Opening ceremony was held on Monday night at 5 p.m. with rides commencing until Saturday night. There were new deals for tickets every night last week including $20 hand stamp day, dollar day, two for one night and more.

Bumper cars were a hit at this year’s Coffee County Fair. The family-friendly ride was open to all, with children able to ride with a parent if they did not exceed the height requirement.

Along with fair concessions, food booths sponsored by local organizations were also present. Many festival-goers went out to the fairground to support Wesley Heights Methodist Church, American Legion, Coffee County Rescue Squad, Grace Baptist Church and more other local groups.
