Enjoy Albany this November where fall is in full swing. Leaves are falling, fog fills the air, and the starts to nip at our noses. Bundle up for the big Veterans Day Parade and honor our local veterans. Warm up with a glass of seasonal wine at Springhill Cellars’ Federweisser Festival. Get your blood pumping by participating in the Gobbler’s Revenge Road Race. There’s plenty to be thankful for in November.
