Albany History Race
The Fourth Annual Albany History Race is an Amazing Race-style afternoon scavenger hunt for history experts, novices, and visitors interested in learning about Albany's past. The event is free and no prior knowledge is needed.
This year, to support the efforts of the future Albany Firefighters Museum, Albany Public Library is partnering with Albany firefighter Tim Blaney and City Historian Tony Opalka, who are researching the history of the Albany Fire Department.
All locations visited in the race will have connections to the fire department and historic Albany fires.
The race starts at 2 pm at the Albany Heritage Area Visitors Center (25 Quackenbush Square) this year, and ends at Albany Distilling's new tasting room (75 Livingston Ave). There will be prizes for the teams that finish with the fastest times.
It's free to participate but you have to pre-register.
