ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The 66th Annual Exchange Club Fair of Southwest Georgia opens their gates tomorrow to the public and runs through Sunday.

Every year crowds pack the Exchange Club Fairgrounds in Albany for the rides, games, food, and livestock shows.

Organizers say this year, the grounds were updated and more attractions like a Bee Exhibit were added to the lineup. They say this year will be the best yet.

"Go by Harvey's and pick up your arms bands for the coupon and come on out here and exchange that for a $15 coupon. The kids can ride all they want to, all night long," says fair ground manager Skip Nichols.

The Exchange Club gives the fair's proceeds to about 30 different charities around Albany each year.
