Albany -- The Mardi Gras 2007 downtown party is also scheduled Saturday. Organizers set up bleachers and trash cans in the 200-block of Broad Avenue where people will party in the street.

The Downtown Merchants Association will use proceeds to help south Georgians victimized by Friday Night's tornadoes.

"Deaths of local people, you can't ignore that, you can't forget that, and rather than cancel the entire thing, we would rather see it benefit somebody that really needs it," said Mardi Gras Organizer Phil Cannon.

The money will go to the Red Cross tornado relief fund. There will also be a booth set up where you can make donations.
