The Post-Star new sponsor of South Glens Falls holiday parade

Glens Falls Post-Star 

The Post-Star and the Glens Falls National Bank and Trust Company announced today that the media company will succeed the bank as the presenting sponsor of the annual holiday parade in the Village of South Glens Falls.
Plans call for the Post-Star Holiday Parade to step off from Route 9 in the village as is customary at 1 p.m. on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, Nov. 23. This will be the 35th consecutive year that the parade has kicked off the holiday season in the Tri-County region.

“The parade is truly one of the iconic events in our region, and we are very excited to play such a large role in its continuation,” said Rick Emanuel, publisher of the Post-Star. “Glens Falls National Bank has been a tremendous steward of the parade for the past five years. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to carry on the tradition.

“We are also appreciative to Mayor Joe Orlow and the Village of South Glens Falls for hosting the parade and welcoming families from across our region,” Emanuel said.

Thomas J. Murphy, president of Glens Falls National Bank and Trust Company, said, “Glens Falls National and our employees are proud to be a part of the parade’s wonderful tradition. We look forward to enjoying this special holiday event under the leadership of the Post-Star. The parade is in very good hands.”

Gail Hamel of Hamel Resources will continue to serve as the parade coordinator, a role she has filled for the past eight years.

The South Glens Falls holiday parade attracts thousands of spectators from across the region who line Route 9 as more than 100 floats and bands representing schools, businesses and other organizations usher in the holiday season.

Businesses interested in being involved as a parade sponsor are asked to contact Michelle Rice, advertising director of the Post-Star at 742-3243 or mrice@poststar.com.
