ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Looking for some fun and entertainment tonight? Try heading to Downtown Albany for First Friday. Starting at seven, a steel drum band will entertain folks at the corner of Jackson Street and Broad Avenue. Then, R&B group FinalDraft will perform.

First Fridays in Albany was started by Albany Tomorrow.  Now the city, ADICA and different sponsors are partnering to promote the events. Don Buie said, "Totally changing. Not that anything was wrong with the way they did it. We just wanted to put a fresh face and a fresh approach to it."

If you can't go tonight, bring a bag lunch to work on Wednesday and head downtown for your lunch hour. Each Wednesday, from noon until one, you can hear live music at the fountains in front of the government center.
