By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Native American Cultural Festival kicked off Friday at the Parks at Chehaw. Hundreds of school children from around South Georgia got a chance to enjoy traditional Native American music and dancing.

The entire kindergarten class from J.M. Odom School in Moultrie was at the festival. Here's what some of the students enjoyed the most: "They dance good," said one girl. "I like their dresses," said another. What's your favorite part? "Their singing." What about you? "I like the way they dance."

The festival continues Saturday and Sunday from 9:30 til 5. All you pay is admission to the Wild Animal Park, $7.75 for adults and $4.50 for children. Kids under 4 get in free.
