ALBANY, GA (WALB) - If you head to downtown Albany this weekend for the parade or other events you might want to check out the city's new welcome center.

The Convention and Visitors Bureau will hold an open house at its new headquarters.

In addition to the usual hospitality and unique gifts, there will be food and drinks, snacks and book signings by local authors.

"Michael Aye, a local author that wrote the Fighting Anthonys series will be here on Saturday from 10 to 12. And John Bryant will be here on Saturday as well from 1 to 3, and he wrote two history books," said Lisa Riddle, the Director of the Albany Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The Welcome Center is in the renovated Bridge house at 112 Front Street.

It will be open on Saturday from 10 until 4.
