ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Downtown Albany will be buzzing with excitement this New Year's Eve with three different events downtown for adults and families. 

The State Theater and Café 230 have teamed up with the new downtown manager to provide some night life New Year's Eve.

Café 230 will open its doors at 8:00 with a DJ and the Todd Williams Band. The State Theater will also feature a Drivin N Cryin concert, and there will be fireworks in Riverfront Park at midnight.

Café 230 owner B. J. Fletcher hopes people will take advantage of the activities the downtown manager has planned to help draw people downtown.

"We're working close with him and the Downtown Association, Chris Pike, Phil Cannon, Sarah, Aaron, myself it has just been something, you know we didn't put a lot of time into it, but when we thought about it this just fell together, phone calls are coming in and we're excited," said Fletcher.

Fletcher hopes to have at least 200 people at her venue for the event. She's doing an early morning buffet that she's opening up to those after the fireworks and State Theater event.

The Firework display is free to the public.
