The Post Star Holiday Parade

Sunday November 22, 2015

There is nothing like a parade to get you in the spirit of the season! Don't miss the 36th Annual Post Star Holiday Parade on Sunday, November 22nd, 2015!

The Post-Star, the sponsor of the annual November parade, allowed readers to select the theme in December through online voting. This year's reader-selected theme is “Winter Wonderland.” The Grand Marshals will be Gerald "Jerry" Eichin and Frank Munoff, founders of Operation Santa Claus.

As tradition holds, the parade will begin at 1:00 pm from Carriage Traders and Kingpin's Alley Family Fun Center in South Glens Falls. It will then travel north along Route 9 through the village of South Glens Falls.

The parade will showcase more than 110 entries, which include community groups, bands, floats, costumed characters, marchers and of course, an appearance by a very 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 please bring the following items:

  • A new, unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots
  • A non-perishable food item to donate to the Tri-County United Way "Live United" Program

Items for donation may also be brought to any Glens Falls National Bank office in the days leading up to the parade.
