Letters to Santa

Have your children written their letter to Santa yet? You’ll find a mailbox for letters to Santa in front of Glens Falls City Hall, located at 42 Ridge Street in downtown Glens Falls. Families are invited to drop their letters to Santa in the mailbox and they will be delivered to the North Pole.

Santa Parade

Santa Claus paraded around town with a fire truck on Friday, December 4th. We hope you enjoyed it!

Santa and his elf traveled on a flatbed truck donated by Falls Farm and Garden and was accompanied by DeeJay Mike DuBray who will be playing holiday music. Children were encouraged to come outside and wave to Santa!

Due to COVID-19: No congregating, practice social distancing and wear your mask as Santa passes by.
