The Post Star Holiday Parade

The Post Star Holiday Parade: Sunday November 23, 2014

There is nothing like a parade to get you in the spirit of the season! Don't miss the 35th Annual Post Star Holiday Parade on Sunday, November 23rd, 2014!

The Post-Star, the new sponsor of the annual November parade, allowed readers to select the theme in July through online voting. This year's reader selected theme is “Candyland.”
Don't Miss Santa in the South Glens Falls Holiday Parade
The Holiday Parade takes place every year on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. 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. The parade will 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.

In the days leading up to the event, parade participants and spectators are asked to please bring the following donations to any Glens Falls National location:

  • 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

Groups are encouraged to participate in the event by registering online at www.poststar.com. Business sponsorships are available by contacting Michelle Rice, advertising director of The Post-Star, at 742-3243.

Gail Hamel of Hamel Resources LLC is working with ThePost-Star as parade coordinator. For more information about the parade, email Gail Hamel or call her at 761-1220.
