Leader said she took her own children to Niska-Day every year when they were growing up. Now, her grown children, who live in Colonie and Guilderland, bring Leader's grandchildren to the event.
Supervisor Joe Landry echoed Leader's sentiments about Niska-Day's unique ability to build community pride. But he added that the event couldn't happen without the dedication of the people in town.
"It's a true family and community day put on by volunteers in the community," said Supervisor Joe Landry. "The volunteers organize the parade, the events, they bring in vendors. It's done as a community."
Parking for Niska-Day will be available at the Capital Care Medical Arts building adjacent to Craig School, at the Korean Methodist Church, Niskayuna Soccer Park, and Care Net on River Road.
A shuttle service will also be made available by Niskayuna Central Schools.
