The fourth annual Spring Fest takes place in downtown Cohoes this Saturday (May 5).

According to The Record (Troy, NY), Spring Fest is set for Saturday with a block party along Remsen Street from 1-6pm. Warm weather is expected this weekend and city Councilman Don Russell is excited for it. Russell started Spring Fest to bring people out to explore the downtown area. The event which usually takes place the weekend before Memorial Day was moved up to the week before Mother's Day so visitors will be able to find gifts for mom from the over two dozen vendors scheduled to appear and the stores in the area.  "Last year's Spring Fest we saw 750 people and with the weather looking good for Saturday, we're thinking we could see 1,000 plus people there this year," Russell said. Live music, food, and drink will all be part of Spring Fest.

So if you're looking for something to do in the Capital Region Saturday, go check out Spring Fest! Looks like fun.
