MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Alabama All Star Sports week continues in Montgomery. The best high school athletes from across the state are competing in 8 different games throughout the week.

Venues around the city are preparing to host some big crowds this week for those games, including Riverwalk stadium, Lagoon park, the Emory Folmar YMCA soccer complex, and Cramton bowl.

This is the largest single conference in Montgomery each year, and one of the largest in the state. In terms of numbers this event brings in between 4,000-5,000 thousand people, between the athletes, coaches, school administrators, and the families.

It brings a boost to tourism numbers, hotel room nights, local restaurants and businesses, as well as sales tax revenues. It's a one week event that brings a huge economic impact to the city of Montgomery and the entire river region. It is a great opportunity for fans too, not just  for local fans here in Montgomery, but for fans around the state.

You get the chance to see some of the best high school athletes who will go on to play college and maybe even pro ball. There is a $5 ticket price for each of the 8 games.

The first games starts tomorrow with baseball at Riverwalk Stadium and softball at Lagoon Park. Check a list of scheduled events below.
