The New Orleans-style party kicks off at 3 p.m. Saturday and runs till 10 p.m.
Crews started decorating Friday all along Water Street from Rhodell's Brewery to the Peoria Riverfront Museum to turn that stretch into the French Quarter.

"There will be food vendors, tons of food, the restaurants will be bringing things out, artists everywhere, street performers, and it's open container, so you can grab a drink at Blue Duck and walk on down to Rhodell's," explains Event Director Kaci Geier.

You'll also find live music on three different stages downtown. The Mardi Gras in May Street Festival is free.
