      A new urban festival could be coming soon to Albany.

      The newly appointed Art Park Advisory Committee held its second meeting tonight. Committee members discusses ways to spread word about the park.

      The main topic was a new festival to happen this year. They hope to have the festival around the same time as the annual Color Run, which is May 3rd.

      "We talked about providing shade in the Art Park," said Monique Broughton, the Downtown Manager's assistant. "We also talked about some annual events we'd like to put in place especially the urban art festival so there's some planning with that."

      The committee will meet the first Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the Riverfront Resource Center at 125 Pine Avenue.
