The first annual, "Family Day in the Park," was held this afternoon at the Albany Fairgrounds, giving families another option for their weekend activities.

A kids fun zone, music stage, and car show were just a few of the attractions on tap and event coordinators say this is just the beginning for this new event.

"We're trying to bring an event for the community, all ages, all genres, something for the city of Albany to call their own, to bring us all out for some entertainment," said event coordinator, George Crawford.

The event was slated to go from noon to 6:00 PM, and the security staff wanted to add that they kept it locked down and everybody safe.
