Poultry show Saturday at fairgrounds

by Sarah Fay Campbell

The annual poultry show hosted by the Chattahoochee Valley Poultry Association will go on as planned this weekend at the Coweta County Fairgrounds on Pine Road.

The show — with most activities Saturday — features hundreds of fancy poultry on display for the competition, as well as a sale area and swap meet.

“It’s beautiful weather this year,” said Bryan Massengale, CVPA president “We’ve got a lot of vendors, and we’ve got 2,170 birds entered in the show.”

Massengale said phones were ringing off the hook from people wondering if the show was still on after this week’s ice and snow. A few people may not make the trip but “most of them will be there,” he said.

The swap meet is open to any vendors. However, out of respect for the event sponsors, no additional concession, new poultry supply, or animal feed vendors will be allowed. The vendor fee is $10.
