Climax, GA

That's the name of the town we live in. It's a small town between Bainbridge, GA and Cairo, GA. Everyday at 12 and 6 the church bells ring and or play a hymn one street over from our home. Climax is the highest point in Decatur County hence it's name. Anyway, my hubby the Chief is the police chief of our town, we live next door to the mayor and it's just a sweet town of "yester year". The home we live in was built in 1912 and is an old farm house, we have a small pecan grove adjacent to the property and we love it! We have a total community of about 300.

Anyway, Climax is most known for the title "Home of Swine Time". Yup, it's a pig festival. I asked the Chief what are the Swine celebrating (he didn't know) but we know this town LOVES pigs! So every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving is the Swine Time festival. We walk down to the morning parade and then walk the festivities until we are ready for funnel cakes and candied apples...It's a fun day for sure.
Yup, Kissing Pigs!Here comes Daddy! The Chief Leads the Parade!

Kenna chose the bungee as her "ride" (this...um, stuff is expensive)


Leaving our house to walk down to Main Street


We truly appreciate this town. It's hard to find small sweet towns, towns that you only read about or hear about!
