ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Be a tourist In your own town. That's the challenge from Albany's Recreation Department.
They want folks who live in Albany to stay here for the fourth of July and promise the biggest and best fireworks show south of Atlanta.
Dale Henry has been in charge of the fireworks show in Albany for 19 years. He showed off some of the devices this morning that he'll use during the massive display, demonstrating just how the fuses work.
Henry says there are three reasons you should stay in town for the show: The show's on a Friday, gas prices are too high to travel, and he has $20,000 worth of fireworks to knock your socks off.
"It's going to be as big as it was last year, a little bit bigger and there's some other stuff I'm not going to tell you about," says Fireworks Organizer Dale Henry.
Top Secret? "Yeah. I've got some other stuff I'm going to be putting in there."
The fireworks begin at dark Friday and will be displayed from the Broad Avenue Bridge, which will close to all traffic around 6:30 Friday morning so crews can set up the fireworks.
The Flint Riverquarium has a reduced rate on Friday and vendors and entertainers will set up in downtown in the early afternoon.
