South Georgia brings in the New Year

December 31, 2007

Albany -- Whether it's partying or praising, people throughout Southwest Georgia are celebrating in all kinds of ways while bringing in 2008.

Several thousand people packed the Civic Center Monday night for the fifth annual Unity 2007 Night Watch service.

Others will be in Harvest Moon celebrating the last night it will be open in its downtown Albany location.

"Well one of the things I look forward to every December 31st is giving God thanks for everything that he has done throughout the whole year," said Brandi Robinson.

"After six years we're moving to the other side of town. And we are excited to be blowing it out here this New Year and have a good time. And you all come see us when we open back up," said Billy Mann.

Harvest Moon is expected to re-open at its new location in West Albany the second week of January.
