Albany’s Barrel Saloon is hosting it’s fifth annual BarrelFest on Saturday (March 5) with a full day of smokin’ Texas BBQ, drink specials, big prizes and, of course, lots of foot-stompin’ live music.

The big bash kicks off at 1pm, and in addition to the indoor festivities, there will also be a huge heated tent out front with even more live music.
