Weekend impact in Albany

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - This past weekend was a big one for the city of Albany.

Visitors were in town for the festivities.

Thanks to Wing Fest and the Jeff Foxworthy show, the economic impact from the weekend was more than usual.

Businesses and restaurants were crowded with folks.

The staff at the welcome center said that they saw more than  100 visitors come from out of town and stop by.

The Jeff Foxworthy show also generated more than $70,000 in ticket sales, all to help storm victims in the area.
