Albany-- Downtown Albany is ready for Mardi Gras.

Becky Eckles was handing out Mardi Gras beads to customers at her restaurant, The Broad Street Bistro. The Bistro is one of the sponsors of Saturday's Mardi Gras block-party. Store owners hope the festival will encourage people to visit downtown. Eckles says, "We've been here four years and its exciting to see things moving like they are. We want people to see what's going on--we hope the festival is a start."

Admission is five dollars. It starts at noon--with bands, games, prizes, and activities until midnight.
