ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany officials are hoping and preparing for a large turnout for this year's Mardi Gras festival.

Last year's event attendance was down due to rain but officials are expecting a strong turnout for this year's event with ideal weather in the forecast.

The festivities will be held on the 100 block of Pine Avenue on Saturday from noon until midnight.

Organizer Phil Cannon says it will be a good times for the kids

"There will be a street kids fair area," Cannon said. "That will be full of rides, bouncy houses, pick up a turtle, pick up a duck, things of that nature. Very kid-friendly."

Front Street and the 100 block of Pine Avenue will be blocked off from Saturday to Sunday morning.

Officials are preparing for thirty-to-fifty thousand people to turn out.
