ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A number of people got a special tour of the heart of downtown Albany Friday evening.

They took a walking tour of the 100 blocks of Front Street, Broad Avenue, Washington Street and Pine Avenue. They visited businesses, enjoyed food and learned about Albany's history.

Organizers were pleased with the response.  

"Obviously based off popularity we will schedule again and reach out to different parts of downtown," said downtown manager Aaron Blair. "The success has been overwhelming so obviously we will continue."

About 40 people took part in the tour organized by the downtown manager's office.
