Tomorrow is a very special day for my home town and Schenectady’s neighboring town, Niskayuna: it’s NISKADAY! Niskaday is an annual celebration of the town of Niskayuna held for the purpose of entertaining and bringing together its residents and the surrounding community. The day begins with a parade through town at 10am (and lots of candy to catch!!), followed by loads of entertainment, games, crafts, and, of course, lots of delicious food! Finally, the day is capped by the most incredible fireworks show that has seriously spoiled fireworks for me forever. Nisky is a hop, skip, and a jump away from Union and you’d be crazy not to check it out tomorrow!
About The Author
My name is Catherine Elizabeth Ziac (Cat, for short) and I am a senior at Union College in Schenectady, NY. When I'm not studying for my major in economics or my minor in Russian, you can find me skimming through catalogs, playing the flute, fishing, online window shopping, chatting with my sisters (my twin, Julia, studying physics at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, CA, or my little sister Maddy, currently a senior in high school), or out and about in good old Schenectady with my wonderful Union friends! I love pink nails, long showers, office supplies, and going to the public library. I spend too much time looking at blogs and skimming the WSJ online, but I still believe in the merits of a hand-written letter. I am always in the mood for yogurt and granola and am never without a piece of gum. I usually answer "blue" when asked my favorite color, but I know in my heart that it's always been and always will be garnet!
