Wild Tails


The City of Albany is WILD! ‘Wild Tails of Albany Animals’ is a first of its kind guided walking tour that leads your family on a safari through downtown Albany. Together with your guide, you will uncover many creatures in the form of carvings and statues hidden in plain sight. Your guide will regale you with historic ‘tails’ of Albany’s long-time love of furry friends, including Owney the Railway Mail Dog and our beloved Nipper! *May 4th: Special Appearance by Tammy Swinettte and Albert Einswine, family members of Bacon Bits, beloved therapy pig. Tour begins at the Discover Albany Visitors Center. Public parking available behind the Visitors Center via Spencer Street off Broadway.
