Albany -- Broad Avenue became Bourbon street in downtown Albany with live bands, costumed pets, and colorful beads.

The Wildcats Marching Band was among the performers at the annual Mardi Gras event.

It was playtime for many festival goers, who also enjoyed about 50 different foods and arts and crafts.

Pets paraded down the street dressed to impress in their Mardi Gras gear.

"He likes getting out, you know, just having a good time with the other dogs, just get some fresh air. It's a nice day," said Justin Everritt.

 "I'm just seeing lots of dogs and one goat, and my dog's also excited, both my dogs," said Tana Yelverton.

Mardi Gras runs until midnight Saturday in the 200 block of Broad Avenue.

Part of the proceeds from the event will go to the local American Red Cross to help storm victims.
