Downtown will be the setting for spring dance

May 9, 2006

Albany-- Get your dancing shoes ready. Downtown Albany merchants plan to give you the perfect setting for dancing in the street this weekend.

This Saturday, Broad Avenue will be lined with people for the 2nd Annual Spring Street Dance and Festival. It'll be the first of a series of downtown summer events and organizers say it will be bigger and better than last year.

They promise more bands, more games and even a fashion show. They want people of all ages to come out.

"Last year we had a good turnout. It was a much shorter event so we're hoping to get a much bigger crowd and have more opportunities for families to come out and spend the whole day," says Tommy Gregors.

The festival will run from noon to midnight. Businesses and clubs will also compete in some fun games to highlight the upcoming Special Olympics State Fall Games in Albany.   Businesses or clubs are needed for the games.  Volunteers are also needed for the dance. 

For more information, call the Thronateeska Heritage Center at 229-432-6955.
