ALBANY - Alive at Five has been canceled this year.

The city of Albany said Thursday the decision to cancel the summer concert series at the Corning Preserve was based on CDC guidance and the governor’s order banning mass gathering through June 21.


Instead, the city is featuring hour-long performances live on Facebook from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursdays.

Dad Fest is also canceled.

Other upcoming events like the Jazz Festival and the Last Run 5K are being evaluated.
