Under new management, the Georgia State Fair returns to Macon today.

Rides, vendor displays, and animal exhibits await what the fair's new owner, Mark Lovell, hopes will be an eager crowd.

13WMAZ's Amy Aubert interviewed Lovell on Eyewitness News Mornin' about his reasons for buying and assuming responsibility for the event.

The Georgia State Fair continues through May 6.
