Camilla- Hundreds still flocked to Camilla for the annual Gnat Days festival. The event has been going on for 16 years, but there was a major change this year.

The events are spread over three weeks instead of being packed into just one day.

"We did that because so many of the volunteers were tied up during the day of the actual festival that they didn't get to participate in the other things that were going on. So, spreading it out gives everybody an opportunity to participate," says Kim Foister of the Camilla Chamber of Commerce.

The street fair, concerts and contests were held Saturday. Next week there will be a cheesecake theatre and tasters luncheon.
