Albany County is dressed in holiday style. Drive by local shops and restaurants decked out for the season with festive window displays! Regional artists created seasonal storefront displays for the Downtown Albany BID's Winter Wonderland Public Art Program and Stuyvesant Plaza hosts a window decorating contest, so Albany County is filled with holiday cheer! 

While driving by the windows, consider ordering takeout or curbside pickup from the local restaurants. Cross those final items off of your holiday shopping list by shopping small at local retailers. All local businesses need your support more than ever before during this difficult time!
