Futurity leaves economic footprint on Augusta

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

An Augusta tradition is underway again, and it's a profitable one.

The 34th Annual Augusta Futurity takes place at the James Brown Arena all week.

Riders and cutters from 30 different states have all made their way to the Garden City, and that's a good thing.

The event generally has the second largest economic impact on Augusta after the Masters, bringing in millions of dollars.

"When you bring a lot of people from different places, what do they do?" says Futurity Show Manager Sherry Fulmer. "They buy gas, they eat at your restaurants, they're in your hotels, they're in your shopping centers. We should give a big thank you to all our guests this week."\
