      The Exchange Club Fair of Southwest Georgia will kickoff carnival in Albany when the fair opens Tuesday.

      Last year, the fair had a $3.5 million economic impact on the city.

      Fair officials are expecting an even larger crowd this year.

      Folks at the fairgrounds spent Monday setting up the rides and booths in preparation for large crowds.
