Tulip Fest is next weekend, but today (Friday) Moses was already presiding over an impressive array of the flowers in Washington Park. We stopped by on our way to a concert at the Albany Institute of History and Art, one of a number of free events being put on this season by Opera Saratoga. They will, for example, be back in in Albany on June 4 at Capital Rep, performing scenes from operatic fairy tales.
Meanwhile, on Sunday May 1, the wife and I are planning to attend the Albany History Fair, which this year "will focus on Albany's agricultural and gardening past." This event,too, is free of charge, and will be held from noon to 4 at Historic Cherry Hill.
