Alive At Five To Return For 2021

Apr 12, 2021

Albany's annual summer concert series is poised for a comeback.

Last May, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo banned all mass gatherings due to the COVID-19 outbreak. That left city hall scrambling to save the Tulip Festival, which eventually was held virtually, but Alive At Five was scrapped for 2020. Albany's Public Relations Co-ordinator Ryan Murray says "not this year."

"We will have an Alive at Five," Murray said. "It might be all virtual and shows that you watch online. If not, if things are much better, we might have, could have, something, but we gotta make sure everyone is safe, and we gotta make sure that we can follow all the CDC guidelines and all that, even if it's outside in the park."

Murray says all options for the free Thursday night concert series are on the table.
