During our summer months, Albany has a free concert series that is offered to Capital Region residents. The summer concerts occur every Thursday and are called "Alive at five." I make an attempt to attend the concerts because they showcase various cultural music types and dedicate that Thursday night to the culture. This year included such concerts as Reggae night, Irish night, and Latin night. Albany also has a three day event in September that is dedicated to the Polish community. It is a celebration of the Polish-American culture. During this celebration, visitors learn about the culture through food, dance, and speakers.
