'Southern Weekend' variety show comes to Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A variety show that features hot spots throughout the south is made its way to Columbus for the first time Wednesday.

The crew from the "Southern Weekend" will spend four days shooting different areas around the Chattahoochee Valley. They visit Callaway Gardens Thursday and will spend the weekend exploring Downtown Columbus.

A welcome party for the "Southern Weekend" took place at the WC Bradley building in Columbus.

"This is my first time in Columbus and I have hosted this show for three years. This is the first time that we have ever had a welcome party like we have had here in Columbus. So, Columbus has raised the bar high for the rest of the southeastern part of the country," says Molly McKinney, host of "Southern Weekend."

The party included drinks and refreshments and the crew says it's very appreciative of it all.
