The Chatham County Youth Commission held their 18th Annual Youth Rally on Saturday.
The event took place in Rousakis Plaza on River Street. It was full of fun, food, and great entertainment. National and local recording artists performed, and there were various health and awareness displays for everyone to check out. Organizers say this rally was held to help fulfill a very important need in the local community.
"We really have the event to bring people together, especially young people. A lot of people complain that there are not things for them to do, and that is why young people are doing dangerous things. So, we are providing an event that keeps people off the streets, keeps them happy, and gets them together," said Marissa Karp, Chatham County Youth Commission Chairwoman.
Organizers say it took about six months to plan this event.
Previous youth rallies have attracted more than 1,000 youth from all over Chatham County.
