Park grand opening draws thousands

June 7, 2004

Albany - More than 25,000 people visited Albany's new RiverFront Park over the weekend, far exceeding expectations.

Saturday night's movie "Shrek" drew the largest audience of the three movies. 10,000 people came out Saturday night, and an additional 5,000 visited during the all-day festival that day. Vendors sold out of food, but Albany Tomorrow leaders don't know yet how much money vendors made.

The play park was packed with kids all weekend. There were no reported safety problems, but police were on hand just in case.
