ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Flint RiverQuarium is five years old, and it was time to celebrate.

This holiday weekend, hundreds are expected to join the downtown attraction to help in that celebration.

They're offering three days packed with festivities to commemorate the milestone including discounted admission.

Saturday was the grand opening of Alligators, a new exhibit including a rare albino alligator, and a new movie Dragons in Paradise.

Kids had a lot of fun at the Birthday party on the plaza with family activities like pony rides and a petting zoo.

5,500 people visited when it opened Labor day weekend 2004.

More than 430,000 people have visited the Riverquarium since then.
