Redneck Circus Rolls in to Abbeville

The Redneck Circus rolled into central Georgia, bringing with it contests like the longest mullet, mud wrestling and tractor pulls.

"This is what a circus is," said Durty Dingus, the circus mascot.

It brought people from all over to Abbeville to show off their redneck pride.

"The kids around here we're all rednecks," said Sonya Hicks of Abbeville. "We love to mud bog. We love to ride the big trucks and the ATV's and the four wheelers."

For some, the events were the highlight, but for others it was more about the quality time.

Christy Richey, form Rochelle said, "This is what everybody forgets about. It needs to be like this more often."

"The family can actually get out and spend time together, said Wayne Taylor from Fitzgerald.

Organizers say people packing in throughout the weekend.

Durty Dingus said, "Probably a thousand people, 1,500 people and they're still coming in."

The festivites continue on Monday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

They include a tough man competition and pickled pigs feet eating contest.
