MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Moultrie's Main Street program is giving away a little piece of the city's history.

But the nostalgic items are selling fast!

Thousands of light bulbs have lit up the downtown square for the past 71 years.

But this year, the bulbs are being transformed into Christmas ornaments, now that new LED lights have replaced them. 

Main Street Director Amy Johnson said they started out with around 7,000 old bulbs and they've already sold half of them. 

Johnson said people from seven different states have called to order bulbs. 

"This canopy of lights touched so many people.  Even people who don't live here," she said. "Maybe they're not even attached to Moultrie, but they've seen those lights, it's become a tradition to their family to see those lights, and they want a piece of it.  They feel that connection to it."

The canopy of lights will be lit at 6 p.m. Thanksgiving night. 

The Main Street program will be selling the old light bulbs for $8 dollars at the event.

You can call the Main Street office if you'd like to place an order.
