Albany-- Some South Georgians are reliving the sixty's hit song Dancing in the Streets.

Saturday night, part of Broad Avenue was closed off for the Downtown Spring Street Dance 2005. Various local bands were in concert as families and friends danced in the streets. The street dance is sponsored by the Downtown Albany Association and the Thronateeska Heritage Center.

The event was previously held in front of the Heritage Center but organizers decided to move it this year.

"In conjunction with the renovations of downtown that the Albany Downtown Association is doing, we decided to move it to the 200 block of Broad this year," says organizer Phil Cannon.

"It's great for Albany because the more people that hears about it, that means more business down here," says Carrie Alexander.

The event went until midnight. Local band The Kinchafoonee Cowboys also performed.
