ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

South Georgians can do some Christmas shopping at Chehaw this week. 

Staff are bringing back the Holiday Market for the second year in a row. 

Residents can buy gifts from personal hygiene products to home decor and even clothes.

This year, there will be 40 vendors similar to last year participating in the market. 

Staff said the event helps local vendors sell their products during the holiday season. 

"We like reaching out to different businesses in the community and giving them a place, you know some of these people don't have a setup store so they need a place to set up and sell their goods. So we thought, why not here," said Chehaw Park Community Engagement Director Morgan Burnette.

Chehaw's Holiday Market will take place on Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Creekside Education Center.

Staff will also be hosting their annual bike night on the same day and time.

Bikers will get a chance to preview the many Christmas displays part of the Festival of Lights before it opens to the public.
