It is great news Albany's July Fourth celebration is returning to downtown this weekend.
The city has done a great job planning a family oriented movie, concert and of course fireworks at the Civic Center.
The planning has also included added security to prevent the problems that happened the last time the event was held downtown.
"The security plan has been finalized so people can expect a strong presence of police," said Phyllis Banks, APD Media Manager.
The Exchange Club of Albany deserves a big thank you for hosting this event the last two years but our Independence Day celebration belongs in the heart of our city.. downtown..
We hope to see you there
