The International City Festival pulls attention and businesses to an area that's been dead for years.
Years ago, drivers passing by Commercial Circle would have done just that, pass by. Nowadays, more turning signals are flashing.
"Bring in new businesses and revitalize and revive the area," said International City Festival Chairman and owner of Chic Boutique in Commercial Circle, Gena Deboe.
Deboe says in the 1950s, this area was the heart of the city. Over the past few decades, she says the area died. Now she's part of a movement restore the roots of Warner Robins.
"You can see the trees and the shrubs and the light post. We have beautiful sidewalks come in since the last festival."
For Deboe, it's an effort that's taken time, and with the help of the festival, more attention and money is pulled to the areas businesses.
