Businesses in Moultrie are preparing for the thousands of visitors this weekend.

Moss Farms is hosting the AT&T National Diving Championships.  

The competition will last two weeks.

A little over two months ago Moultrie received news that they would be hosting the 2016 AT&T National Diving Championship.

"I think there is going to be more people coming in than we can actually get in the door and feed during our regular business hours," said Blue Sky Grill Owner, Randy Bannister.

Many businesses have made adjustments to prepare for the event.

"We are staffing up bringing extra servers in, extra cooks in, because we know we are going to be hit every night so we are here to serve people the best we can," said Bannister.

Businesses in downtown plan to be open a few hours later each day.

"Our businesses are very excited, you'll see a lot of windows throughout the community that have been painted in support of the divers," said Moultrie Chamber Interim President, Tommie Beth Willis.

She's right, almost every business in downtown Moultrie is painted with welcome and good luck messages. 

"Everybody has worked really hard to make this a success," said Coco's Boutique Owner, Jenna Alderman.
