ALBANY, GA (WALB) –   Musicians will also be in the spotlight Saturday. The Mardi Gras street festival will include 11 hours of music on two stages.

The main stage will be downtown at Broad and Jackson, starting at one. But there will be a second stage and musical venue starting at noon at the Veteran's Park Amphitheater, with 15 bands and artists performing.

"That was our vision when we started it 8 years ago. To have a music festival, street festival in downtown Albany. And it's grown into what we hoped that it would, and we are very excited about it," said Bo Henry, Albany restaurateur and leader of the Bo Henry Band.

 A wide variety of local and national groups will be playing.

Organizers say you need to stick around for the headliners, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band from New Orleans. They'll perform around 11 Saturday night.
