MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

An fun annual event is back in Moultrie this weekend.

The Spring Fling and Backyard BBQ Festival will have plenty of food, entertainment, and even a few competitions for the whole family.

And event organizers say this is always provides a nice boost to the downtown economy.

"We'll have all day activities. There is a barbeque kick off. There's kids activities. There is a pet parade. Of course all of this is surrounded by all of our downtown shops and businesses. So it's going to be a fun day from 9-4 on Saturday," said Downtown Marketing Director Amy Johnson.

The festivities kick off Friday night at 8 in Downtown Moultrie with the Street Corner Symphony.

Organizers say if it does rain, the concert will be moved to the Colquitt County Art Center.
