If you missed the beginning of Walton County’s new flag in honor of the County’s Bicentennial Celebrations making its way to the County this week, you still have a few opportunities to catch it along the way. It arrived in Loganville on Tuesday, and made it’s way to Between Wednesday morning, where it flew over the fire station overnight before being taken by fire truck to Walnut Grove on Thursday. (Click or tap on the links for a photographic and video glimpse of its proud journey along the way by police escort, runners, horsewomen and a fire truck.)
