Every fall, tens of thousands of Georgians load up cars and head to the Georgia National Fair in Perry. For some, it’s a chance to sneak out for a night of adventure. For others, it’s their big family getaway.

For all, though, it’s a chance to speed and spin, to be hurled through the air and crushed up against your siblings on the amusement rides.


For the sixth time, students from Grady College’s Advanced Photojournalism course spent an entire day, from the opening of the gates at 8 a.m. to the fireworks display 15 hours later, scouring the Georgia National Fairgrounds for the moments that show what the fair means to the attendees. Working with nine coaches who gave them feedback throughout the day, the students made more than 40,000 photos and walked, on average, 10 miles each.
