VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

If you're looking for something to do this weekend, you might consider going to the Azalea Festival in Valdosta.

Crews began setting up for the festival Thursday afternoon in Drexel Park. The festival attracts people from all over the country and has been held for the past 14 years. There will be live music, food, and plenty of entertainment.

"It's likely going to be the biggest and best festival we've had yet. We've got over 150 arts and crafts vendors, 10 food vendors, and 5 different stage areas of entertainment," said Aaron Strickland, Executive Director of the Azalea Festival.

Strickland added that the festival will go on, rain or shine.

The festival will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. For a schedule of events, visit http://azaleafestival.com/
