MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Some businesses in Moultrie are expecting more money to come in thanks to the Spring Fling & Backyard BBQ Festival this weekend.

Staff at Market on the Square said that Spring Fling is one of its bigger sales weekends throughout the year, similar to Christmas events and small business weekend.

Earline Hughey, a manager assistant at the store, said the influx of people, especially on the square, brings in new business from people outside Colquitt County.

"We have people from Tallahasee, Thomasville, Tifton, Valdosta, everywhere," said Hughey.

If you're in town for the festival, you'll find a lot of Moultrie businesses open this weekend.

Some of them even put special items on sale and display them on the sidewalks throughout the square.
