Christmas is coming to Albany!  Times two!Albany is getting ready for Christmas this week with the arrival of two trees!  One tree will be located in the easy park of the Capitol and the other at the Empire State Plaza.

The City’s trees arrived at the plaza today!  Both trees came from local families, and are taking their places as we speak to get ready for the annual tree lighting ceremony. One of the tree’s that was taken from Mechanicville today, is registering at 45 feet tall! I think I have one in my front yard they can have next year! Call me - it's all yours Albany!

To see the tree light up this year, you can attend the free “The Empire State Plaza Holiday Tree Lighting and Fireworks Festival” on December 6th! Family festivities are planned for the event, including SANTA! It’s an all day event starting at 1pm and ending with the lighting ceremony at 6.
Happy Holidays
