EDISON, GA - The Georgia Walking Horse Ladies Auxiliary will hold its annual horse show in Edison, GA this year. The event, which starts at 3:30 P.M. EST and runs into the evening, will be held at the Edison Lions Club Show Grounds on Halloween, Saturday, October 31st.

The event will not only be about walking horse breeders and exhibitors. With the event occurring on Halloween, there will be plenty of traditional Halloween activities for the young and young at heart to enjoy. Mandie McFay, one of the event organizers, is expecting a large crowd.

"Not only will those in attendance be able to enjoy the horse show, but there will be plenty of traditional Halloween activities for attendees to enjoy," stated McFay.

Planned activities include a costume contest for kids and the kids at heart, a dog show, trick or treat stands, face painting, a silent auction and cake walks.

"There will also be great merchandise and edible delights from vendors. It should be a great afternoon and evening for the families of southwest Georgia to come out and enjoy," Stephens added.   

Edison Mayor Reeves Lane is looking forward to the event. The city has it's annual Billie Lane King Cotton Horse Show every May on Mother's Day weekend.

Mayor Lane is excited about the event, not only because it is a great opportunity to bring together the community, trick or treaters and horse lovers, but it is also for a very good cause.

"The event will help benefit Storybook Farms. Storybook Farms, located in Opelika, AL, provides therapeutic services through horses to the handicapped. That combined with my love for horses and the fact that it is being held on Halloween makes me thrilled to see the event coming to our city," stated Lane.

Mayor Lane, a horse exhibitor himself, encourages those planning to attend to purchase box seats for $20. Those that purchase box seats get to setup their box tailgate style with their own chairs, tables, and if they want Halloween décor.

For those that do not plan to buy box seats, general seating will be available in the stands. To order box seats, interested parties are to send a check payable to GWHLA and addressed to Mandie McFay at 415 Rogers Road, Edison, GA 39846. General admission is $5.

The Edison Lions Club Show Ground is located directly behind the Calhoun County Nursing Home on Turner Street, which is Georgia Hwy 216 South.
