ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  You can take a peek at what life was like in South Georgia when native Americans settled here so many years ago.

This weekend the Native American Festival is being held at Chehaw Park. Today, hundreds of school aged children came to the park to see the traditional dance, dress and customs of Native Americans. 

"Got a lot of wonderful demonstrations, wonderful entertainment going on and some of the best vendors, really, high quality merchandise." said Chehaw's Natural Resource Director Ben Kirkland.

The Native American Festival is going on all day Saturday  and Sunday at Chehaw Park. Admission to the festival is included with entry into the Animal park.
