Albany City Hall At Twilight

Albany City Hall will be lighting the holiday season up virtually this year.

Mayor Kathy Sheehan says she will be joined by the Albany Tulip Court tonight at 7 to flip the switch on 2020's holiday lights display. Like so many other city activities, the pandemic has pushed the lights online.

City Hall says the livestreamed event will feature musical performances from Albany High School's choirs, along with holiday music from local artists as well as a magic performance from Melvin the Magnificent for kids.
