THE ONION AMBASSADOR This is the first in a series of children's books about Georgia. In this book, "Yumion", a walking talking, Vidalia onion is discovered on a farm in south Georgia. Yumion is the character who travels all over Georgia meeting people and learning all about different parts of this great state. Children, parents and grandparents enjoy this book because the illustrations are very colorful and lifelike, and the rhythmic story is fun to read. As a special "sweet" surprise.
For the first time, there will be an onion field at the Vidalia Regional Airport for people to see during the festival. Finally in the ground! Thanks to the UGA Vidalia Onion & Vegetable Research Center!
