ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Christmas parade will go on downtown tomorrow rain or shine.  City workers set up the stage in front of the courthouse. With good weather, the parade normally draws about 40-thousand people downtown.

Live music will kick off the festivities at five. Organizers say seven different bands will perform tomorrow evening. The parade will begin at six.

"We wanted to bring emphasis back to downtown. Its safe to come downtown at night its probably one of the safest places you can be.We also wanted to encourage businesses to stay open and some of them do and we also wanted it to be a community event which it certainly is," says Lorie Farkas.

The parade will be televised live on WALB News 10. Chris Zaleman and Karla Heath Sands will be this year's hosts.
