With high temperatures forecasted again for today, the Albany Parking Authority (APA) has announced that they will be giving away bottles of water to people that park at Columbia garage for tonight’s Alive @ Five concert, featuring Patty Smyth & Scandal. With temperatures expected to be in the 90’s, APA Executive Director Michael Klein reminds concert goers to stay hydrated and shaded as they enjoy tonight’s performance.
“Alive @ Five is a popular summer tradition here in Albany, and we are supporting the event by handing out free bottled water at Columbia garage. Come on downtown for tonight’s show and continue the fun,” said Michael Klein, Executive Director of the Albany Parking Authority. “Many concert goers park in Columbia garage as it is only $5 and is so convenient, and we are taking this opportunity to say thank you to our customers with this timely gift.”
Columbia Garage is adjacent to the pedestrian bridge to the Corning Preserve, and is known for being the closest parking garage to the Alive at Five concerts held at the Preserve. The Albany Parking Authority gives away a free space in the Columbia Garage for each Alive at Five concert, and tonight is no exception. To be eligible to win, “like” the Albany Parking Authority Facebook page and post the phrase “closest space to the stage” on the APA Facebook wall.
Water bottles will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis while supplies last.
