Downtown Albany -- Better late than never, downtown Albany will host a Cinco De Mayo Celebration this weekend.

The Downtown Albany Merchants Association plans to celebrate Cinco De Mayo Albany style with music, dancing, a talent contest, and more.  Kids activities will be held from three to seven Saturday in the 200 block of Broad Avenue in front of San Joe's. 

The party will continue from seven to midnight with a D-J and dancing.  The celebration is an example of the changing direction the downtown merchants association is taking with downtown Albany.

"We're changing our philosophy a little bit, we're going to do instead of one or two big events, in the year we're going to try and do many more smaller events on a much more consistent time basis," said Phil Cannon of the Downtown Albany Merchants Association.

Other activities will include a dunking booth where you'll find our own Ben Roberts getting wet from 4:30 to 5:00.
