AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

Hundreds of people will gather in downtown Americus on Thursday to eat.

The 29th Annual Taste of Sumter will showcase local restaurants.

20 restaurants will participate, showing off some of their best dishes.

There will also be live entertainment.

"For a thousand people plus to be able to try some different foods that are out there and then realize that they can go out there and have these full dinners at all these other places. This should be a huge boost to the economy in terms of all of these restaurants over the next several months," said Americus Main Street Director Patrick Kay.

Taste of Sumter takes place on Thursday 6 to 9 p.m.

It costs $5 for the general public and $3 for students.
