ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The colors of fall in Albany are turning out to be blue and gold.  It's homecoming week at Albany State University.  The Rams take on Miles College Saturday.

Albany will welcome thousands of alumni back to town.  The Chamber of Commerce and parking deck downtown are already decked out in Blue and Gold to make the fans feel welcomed.

Chamber President Catherine Glover would like to see every business sport ASU colors this week to show support for the University.

She said, "Welcome ASU, welcome alumni, the students, the families, the parents, everybody coming in.  Put it up on your Marquis.  Welcome ASU, Go Rams, whatever you want to say, show your support."

Homecoming at Albany State is the biggest annual event that takes place in Albany, bringing millions of dollars into the economy in the community.
