ALBANY, GA (WALB) - If you've driven around Albany recently, you've likely seen teepees up around town. They signal the upcoming Native American Cultural Festival that begins Friday at Chehaw.
Visitors will get a chance to watch traditional Native American dancing, storytelling and music. Plus, there will be pottery, stone tools and demonstrations of how to chip arrowheads.
This year the festival has moved to the Wild Animal Park. "There is some wonderful North American animal exhibits that have a strong cultural connection with all the Native American groups; bald eagle and bison to black bear, red wolf and alligators," Operations Manager Ben Kirkland said. "So our staff is going to be doing programming at those sites or they'll have educational signage up for people to learn about that cultural connection."
On Friday, the festival is only open to school groups. Festival hours on Saturday and Sunday are from 9:30 in the morning to five in the evening.
Entry fees are included in the price of admission to the Wild Animal Park. Kids under four are admitted free.
