By ANDY KOBER Thanks to the LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce, giant hummingbirds will be returning to Hogansville. Hogansville was once home to giant hummingbirds that appeared prior to the Hummingbird festival and were then taken down. Each of the hummingbirds were decorated differently and featured throughout the city. Those hummingbirds have not been seen in a while but more are on the way. Drawing inspiration from the annual Hummingbird Festival, the Tourism Advisory Council of the Chamber along with the City of Hogansville and Hogansville Downtown Development Authority have commissioned the construction of 15 fiberglass hummingbird fig- ures. THE HUMMINGBIRDS will be placed around the downtown area creating a Hummingbird Trail. "The hummingbirds will be a great addition to downtown Hogansville as they are used to emphasize our local landmarks," reported Hummingbird Festival Chair Todd Pike in a Chamber publication spotlight- ing Hogansville. "The Chamber is to be commended for what will surely be a highlight for visitors." The fiberglass hummingbirds will have a windspan of three feet. They will be decorated by local artists with an original story concerning the hummingbird's location. This information will be included in a walk- ing trail brochure. The hummingbirds are being manufactured by Cowpainters.
