From Proctors: "PASSEGGIATA!? No doubt you’ve heard the word. Can you pronounce it? Ever participated in one? If not, here’s an opportunity to share in this delightful custom. Quite simply, Passeggiata is an Italian word for an evening stroll by residents of a town.

"This longstanding and respected ritual helps put the day in focus and punctuates the completion of a day-well spent. Passeggiata (päs-sād-ˈjä-tä) will soon be the new third-Friday tradition in Schenectady’s revitalized downtown area!

"Each third-Friday of the month, residents, businesses and visitors will participate in a downtown stroll-about. Each month will feature a different theme -- and engage businesses and attractions to share some neighborly time together."

Free Afrobeat Dance Party from 7 to 9 p.m. at Ambition Cafe and Bistro with UAlbany's DJ Sir Walford
