Fire Ant Festival

March 27, 2004

Albany-- As the weather heats up, pesky fire ants seem to have more enemies then friends. And, many of them came out to Ashburn Saturday.

Thousands of people poured into Ashburn's Heritage Park for the second day of the annual Fire Ant festival. The celebration started nine years ago as a way to raise awareness about the danger the bugs can cause.

Event goers enjoyed food and entertainment. And there was no sympathy for the guests of honor.

"No they are still a nuisance and a problem but it does make me feel better that we got top choice in here to kill them," says event goer Randy Elliott.

Top choice, a pest control company, sponsored this year's festival. The festival will end at ten Saturday .
