ALBANY, N.Y. -- Tulip Fest showcases Albany's greenery. But this year, blooming flowers aren't the only way the city plans to go green.
CDTA will provide free shuttle service to help clear up traffic congestion in Downtown Albany. You can hop on from Elk and Hawk streets or the OGS Parking Garage. Once you're downtown, you can head to the new gourmet farmers market and green expo!
Don't forget the music. The two day lineup features music from bands like Fountains of Wayne, the group responsible for the hit “Stacy's Mom,” and The City Never Sleeps.
Speaking of moms, the 14th annual Mother of the Year award will be announced that Sunday.
Other yearly traditions include Street Scrubbing Friday May 14th and the Tulip Queen Crowning Saturday.
Spring may have sprung a little early this year, but that shouldn't stop Albany residents from coming out and celebrating good weather.
