TROY — On Saturday May 1, downtown Troy will offer socially-distanced and responsible outdoor spectacles.

“As we continue to move forward with vaccinations we also need to revitalize Troy’s economy and make sure we reopen safely,” said Sue Dunckel, who is organizing the day through her Sweet Sue’s Copper Pot, LLC. ”The question of ‘public health or the economy’ has always been a false choice—the answer must always be both.”

Several of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s COVID-19 related executive orders are set to expire on April 25 and rules on social gatherings are expected to continue to relax throughout May.

Regardless, Dunckel said anyone enjoying themselves in Troy on May 1 is expected to be safe, be mindful of others and follow whatever social distancing policies are in place at the time. All bars and restaurants will follow all SLA guidelines in place at the time.
