South Georgians celebrate history with block party

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Generations of South Georgia residents who grew up on Lincoln Ave got together for big block party on Saturday.

Organizers say they formed a group to help out the neighborhood, and do some clean up.

Families were invited to celebrate with food and activities for the kids, including a bounce house.

"Fellow shipping with one, having our children here, showing them  where we grew up, fellow shipping with our parents, and grand parents who raised us right here, so were just grateful for the turnout and were grateful for the weather," says organizer Christopher Williams.

He says they plan to make the "home boys" reunion and backyard barbeque an annual event.
