ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Before you head downtown this weekend, you need to know the festival will be in a different location.

It's moving from Broad Street to Pine Avenue and Front Street.

Organizers say it's a better location.

"In the River Front Park area, we have designated that as our festival area. It has great scenery. It encompasses the river of course, so it was just a more ideal festival setting for us," said Teresa Smith with the Albany CVB.

Another change, Saturday's festivities will begin at 10 am instead of noon and last until midnight.

Tickets prices are $5 for those 13 years of age and up and $2 for children ages 3 to 12.

Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
