It started Friday in Fort Valley. 

Fort Valley Mayor, Jeffery Lundy, says he’s excited to get out and enjoy his first Peach Festival as mayor.

“I will be a part of it,” he said. “I will be dancing. I will be moving, shaking hands, just let them know that, ‘Hey this is our city,’ and, ‘We want people to come to our city,’ ‘We want people to come to our city and be safe and enjoy the festivities of the Peach Festival.'”

Vendors and live music will continue on Saturday, and “The World’s Largest Peach Cobbler” should be ready by 2 p.m.
