Carolers young and old flooded the Times Union Center on Wednesday (12/12/12) to help set a world record for the most people singing “Jingle Bells” while ringing jingle bells. The event was the brainchild of the Downtown Albany BID. Marquita Rhodes, marketing manager for the organization, said, “We wanted to celebrate the holidays in a dramatic way.” She added that the task of finding a unique way to set a world record was difficult, and that she was very happy with the overall turnout, which appeared to be in the hundreds (the exact count has not been made official).
