Special Mother’s Day Event with Albany Kid & Albany Aqua Ducks!
To celebrate Mother’s Day, SaratogaMama , Albany Kid Family Travel and Albany Aqua Ducks are planning a very special event – and we want you to join us!
We are very pleased to announce an invitation-only Mother-Daughter American Girl Garden Tour on May 8, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. in Albany, NY.
Details on how to enter this contest are down below. I’m looking forward to spending a fabulous Mother-Daughter evening out with some of you!
The American Girl Garden Tour
Customized to reflect the unique history of an American Girl doll, the American Girl Garden Tour is tailored to the girls and dolls present on the trolley tour of downtown Albany.
A group touring with Addy Walker, the African-American doll from the Civil War era, might focus on Albany’s role in the Underground Railroad; while those bringing Kit Kittredge, the Great Depression era doll, might learn about Eleanor Roosevelt and other powerful women from New York State who helped shape our nation.
Along the way, the group will stop to visit beautiful public gardens – including the Moses Statue in Washington Park and Ten Broeck Mansion. And they will enjoy light refreshments at a tea party – with their doll!
About the Albany Aqua Ducks & Tours
The Ducks offer daily, 90-minute guided tours of the historic Albany by land and water from mid-April through October. The amphibious vehicle tours Albany’s historic neighborhoods and then splashes down into the Hudson River!
The popular amphibious vehicle has been joined by a trolley, and a number of fun new events and theme tours have been added to longtime favorites such as the Pirate Adventure Tour. Some of the newest theme tours include:
- Rediscovering our Roots: The Irish Impact in Albany, NY
- The Albany Sweets Tasting Tour
- Meet the Heroes in Albany — our firefighters, police and military.
- Go behind the scenes of the Capital Rep, and the Times Union Center on a A Day at the Theater.
- Step into the shoes of the early Dutch elite to tour Albany’s Mansions.
