“They should come out and support small businesses. Come out and support downtown Albany. As you know covid has really impacted us all so it’s a great event to come out, bring the family, meet and friend, and enjoy downtown,” said Gaskins.

The city will also have a vaccination booth open to the public to get vaccinated.

They are following CDC guidelines, making sure vendors are socially distanced and everyone is wearing a mask.

If you’d like to go to the sidewalk sale, it will be on North Front Street and Pine Avenue from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on May 1.
