ALBANY, NY - As part of National Travel & Tourism Week, the Albany County Convention & Visitors Bureau has employed #TulipTakeover to ensure residents and visitors are excited and ready for the 67th Annual Tulip Festival in Washington Park this May 9-10.

450 artificial tulips will be popping up at four more locations each morning throughout the rest of this week. Every day, the #TulipTakeover Team will deploy the tulips and post a riddle on the @DiscoverAlbany social media channels including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Followers are invited to solve the riddle which will lead to the next takeover location. Each person who guesses correctly will be eligible to win a daily prize package valued at $50.

Play along with our #TulipTakeover on our social media @DiscoverAlbany! Solve our riddle to find out where the Tulips will be popping up tomorrow:


Let's begin our #TulipTakeover with a mosey up the hill
Where fun events are made and politicians write the bills
Two historic landmarks always in his sight
Cast in stone to honor his Revolutionary fight
