White block calendar with words Leap Day and 29 Feb on it

Fun Things to Do on Leap Day around Albany, OR

Leap Day Events Near Albany OR

2020 will be a special year not only because it marks the beginning of a new decade, but also because it will last for 366 days. As you probably know, nearly every four years we add an extra day to the calendar, known as Leap Day, to ensure it stays synchronized with astronomical seasons. While modern calendars contain 365 days, it actually takes Earth 365.25 days to orbit around the Sun. Therefore, February 29th is added periodically to make up the lost time. As Leap Day doesn’t occur annually, it can be a good occasion to celebrate the extra time we have been given and enjoy the weekend doing something different. At Albany CDJR we have put together some Leap Day events near Albany, OR so you make the most of this 29th of February.
