QUITMAN, GA - The City of Quitman is 150 years old and the city's getting ready for a party.

The festivities will include area vendors, auctions, scavenger hunt and close with a costume ball in historic downtown.

City leaders says it's important to remember it's history and celebrate the city's plans for the future.

"One of the things we like to pride ourselves on in Quitman and Brooks County is our ability to more forward with new, growing businesses and keep the charm of historic southern Georgia. We wanted to take a day to honor the face we've reached 150 years," says Lindsay Swengros, the 150th Anniversary Coordinator.

The celebration begins Saturday morning at 7:00 on the courthouse lawn.
