PLAINS, GA (WTVM) – The Jimmy Carter National Historic Site hosted its annual Arts in Archery Saturday, formerly known as Cane Syrup Day.

This year’s festival was bigger and better than last year with all new demonstrators and attractions from glass blowing, blacksmithing, and other traditional arts and crafts.

Visitors to the event could witness first hand a cane syrup demonstration where stalks of sugar are broken down into syrup.

An organizer of the event says this year’s event was a lot different than last year.

“Today is our annual can syrup day this is an event that we host every year, but this year we added a little twist to it we invited a lot of local artists and their crafts into it this year," said Park Ranger Randy Dillard.

The annual event is free to the public where people can purchase food, drinks, and crafts. Click here for more information on the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site.
