ALBANY, GA (WALB) – This year's Albany Christmas parade will be the biggest ever. More than 130 groups are participating in the 19th annual Celebration of lights parade.

Last year 40,000 people attended the parade. It will be chilly out, but organizers expect this year's event to draw an even larger crowd.  Lorie Farkas said, "I think that this is a year hat we're trying to get back to family values and part of family values is a parade which is Americana."

If you can't make it out to the parade, don't worry. We'll broadcast it live on WALB-TV Saturday at 6:00 PM.
