Over 300 classic cars 1988 and older wrapped around downtown Senoia on Sept. 27 for the 10th annual Senoia car show.

Suzanne Helfman, chairman of the downtown development authority, said there were more cars than space available, and she had to turn some cars away during the registration hour earlier that morning.

Heavy traffic expected in Fairburn for Oct. 4 festival

Fairburn Police want residents of Fayette and Coweta counties to be aware of traffic issues which will be present at the Fairburn Fall Festival in the downtown area on Oct. 4.

The festival starts with a parade that begins at 9:30 a.m. A large section of U.S. Hwy. 29 / West Broad Street through downtown will be closed off for the parade. This effectively blocks anyone traveling on Ga. Highway 92 north from Fayette County.

There are several alternates available, the easiest probably being Ga. Highway 138 from Fayette County through Fairburn to completely avoid the downtown area. Read More»
