Albany - - A fun spot in Albany is celebrating 50 years of service to South Georgia.
The All American Fun Park opened its doors in June of 1957. Robert and Rheda Hall were a young, energized couple when they had the idea of opening a miniature golf course.
They started it with that one course. 50 years later, it's now a full-fledged fun park, with bumper boats, laser tag, go-carts, and of course an arcade.
"Our vacation for many years was to go all over the country and see what everybody else was doing. We found out what to do and a lot of times we found out what not to do," says Robert Hall.
The Halls say more improvement plans are in the works. The fun park is open seven days a week. Young people who bring a church bulletin are treated to one free activity.
Saturday marks exactly six months since a third round of deadly tornadoes plowed through South Georgia, killing 16 people.
Loved ones of a murder victim begged for answers Sunday night at a candlelight vigil and balloon release in her honor.
A couple dozen people tried their hand at an exercise with a higher difficulty level out on the water at Chehaw Sunday.
Albany pups helped their owners create a special memory Sunday at The Clay Spot.
Lee County High School hosted a ribbon cutting to officially unveil the project that was years in the making.
