The Annual Post Star Holiday Parade will take place on Sunday, November 23, 2014. The theme of this year’s Post-Star Holiday Parade is "Candyland"! Now in its 35th consecutive year, the event attracts thousands of spectators from across the region.

Maintaining the tradition of being held the Sunday before Thanksgiving, the parade will begin at 1:00 p.m. and will travel north on Route 9, starting at Carriage Traders and Kingpin's Alley Family Fun Center through the village of South Glens Falls.  The parade will showcase more than 110 entries which include community groups, bands, floats, marchers and costumed characters. The event concludes with a special guest, Santa Claus!

Beneficiaries for this year’s parade will once again be Memorial Detachment No.2 of the Marine Corps League Toys for Tots and the Tri-County United Way “Live United”programs. These two groups distribute donated new toys and non-perishable food items to local families in Warren, Washington and northern Saratoga counties.

Parade participants and spectators are asked to bring a new unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots and a nonperishable food item for the Tri-County United Way “Live United” programs. Toys and nonperishable food will also be collected in the days prior to the parade at any Glens Falls National Bank office.
