Tree Lighting in Albany on December 3

Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan will host a tree lighting ceremony in front of City Hall on Wednesday, December 3 at 5 p.m. in honor of the holiday season.

The tree lighting ceremony kicks off with a concert by Amy Heebner on the historic Albany City Carillon beginning at 4:30. Mayor Sheehan, members of the Albany Tulip Court and City officials will light the tree at 5:15. Enjoy holiday music and light refreshments following the lighting, as well as an Albany “wishing well” for attendees to write what they’d like to see in the City in 2015.

Attendees are encouraged to spend the evening downtown and visit the 3rd Annual Albany Holiday Market at the Albany County Visitors Center at 25 Quackenbush Square after the tree lighting. The Holiday Market features a variety of local vendors, live music, food and beverage tastings, door prizes and much more. For more information, visit
