Atlanta police expect busy holiday weekend in the city

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Atlanta police want people to brace for a lot of traffic in downtown over the Memorial Day weekend.  

The Atlanta Jazz Festival kicks off Saturday at Piedmont Park.

There is also a Caribbean Carnival and parade that will cause some roads to close.

Police encourage everyone to take MARTA or carpool into the city.

Officials say, because of the large crowds, everyone needs to stay alert and safe.  

A reminder about the city's See Something, Say Something Campaign: if you see any suspicious activity, alert a police officer or call 911.
