Albany- Gena Crews, a vendor from Lake Park, says she's the only vendor who's never missed a Marine Corps Base Independence Day celebration.
"I love the people," Crews said. "They treat us good. They're always very helpful. We just have a good time here."
She and her crew we're getting ready to cool down Friday night's crowd with frozen daiquiris and lemonade, while the other vendors were putting up their tents and signs.
"We're gonna have lots of food, lots of food, lots of vendors," said Staff Sgt. Kitras Thomas.
Charlie Lawhorn is one of those and he was busy boiling peanuts.
"I've heard some real good things about this one," Lawhorn said.
As the Marines open the base, it's just the beginning of a weekend full of activities. Albany's new Saturday Market begins Saturday at 2 p.m. They were setting up the signs Friday and getting ready for a new downtown tradition. Monday night, Riverfront Park will be packed with people waiting to watch fireworks shot from the Broad Street bridge and behind the Civic Center to wrap of a weekend for independence.
"We can all kind of celebrate and interact with each other as far as a community," Thomas said.
Crew will be waiting to cool people down during a hot celebration.
"Gives them a chance for the Marine Corp base to say thank you for having them here. I know that people appreciate this base."
