BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - Fire hydrants in Bainbridge have received a makeover this summer.

Yesterday, students with the summer art camp got the chance to paint the hydrants in the downtown square.

The students decided to go with a patriotic theme painting the hydrants as an American flag.

They said they received a lot of positive feedback from the community.

"They would bring us water, it was people we didn't even know. We had a woman come by and stuck the flag out of the window and was waving saying we love what you're doing," said Rebecca Cole, Art teacher,

There are about 800 hydrants in Bainbridge. The group said eventually they may all be decorated in the coming years.
