ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Here's something you haven't heard much of lately: New jobs are coming to Albany. All American Fun Park plans to hire 15 to 20 people to work at the new bowling alley currently under construction. They've got plenty of people to choose from.
Managers have been taking 50 to 60 applications every month, and just last weekend, 100 people applied during a career fair. We found two men putting in their applications this afternoon.

The bowling alley should be complete within the next few weeks.
