Albany--Today is Fat Tuesday and Albany's waterlogged Mardi Gras celebration was last Saturday, but the Mardi Gras fun isn't over.

Since rain washed out many activities and cost vendors plenty of money, organizers of Albany's street downtown party plan to bring it back this Saturday.

They'll try again to bring you food, games, and music from noon until midnight on Broad Avenue.

They only have a few days to get ready, but organizers say the hard work will pay off.

"It's a lot of work in a short period of time, but we look forward to doing it, and having a good time for the people to come down," says Bo Henry, one of the street festival's organizers.

Admission is five dollars. Children fourteen and under get in free.
