Festival celebrates black heritage

September 5, 2003

Albany- The Albany Black Heritage Festival will run until Sunday and will feature entertainment for kids and adults.

Dozens of vendors set up at the Albany Farmers market selling everything from art to jewelry.

"It's a celebration of our heritage, our culture and we don't have very many places that cater to those type of needs. So, this will give us a chance and an outlet where we can do that every year," says coordinator Delinda Bryant.

The festival will end at 8 Friday night and pick back up at 9:30 AM tomorrow for a parade. Sunday events will run from noon to 6 PM.
