ALBANY, N.Y. -- A big announcement is expected for one of the Capital Region's favorite festivals. The 65th Annual Albany Tulip Festival is gaining national recognition.
Mayor Jerry Jennings, along with Visitors Bureau and Tulip Festival officials, plans to make the announcement at the Albany Visitors Center Heritage Gardens. They will be joined by several fourth graders from the Loudonville Christian School, who will then spend the morning planting tulips in the Heritage Garden as part of the Journey North project.
Journey North is an international science project in which students plant bulbs and track their growth online.
These bulbs will contribute to more than 100,000 tulips planted throughout the city of Albany in preparation for the 2013 Tulip Festival.
