ALBANY, N.Y. – Albany is officially the world record holder for the most people to sing jingle bells while ringing jingle bells.

On December 12th, 488 singers participated in creating this record, gathering en masse in front of the Times Union Center at noon.

The jingle bells at the event were courtesy of B. Lodge and Company.

Albany Mayor Jennings, who was in attendance for the record setting, said that it was the original vision of the designers of the Times Union Center building for the building to serve as Albany's ‘front porch.'

"What a joyful way to bring that initial vision to life by gathering over 400 people on Albany's front porch to set a world record for Downtown," said Jennings.
