It was a spectacular Spring day on Memorial Day 2013 as the annual Glens Falls-Queensbury Memorial Day Parade marched up Glen Street to Crandall Park for the joint community celebration.
Congressman Bill Owens, Mayor Jack Diamond and Queensbury Councilman John Strough marched up to speak at the commemoration, as other elected officials, including a large delegation of Democrats marched with them.
Judge John Hall and Warren County Democrats, including former Mayor Frank O'Keefe, Dennis Tarantino, County Chair Lynne Boecher and supervisor-at-large candidate Dean Boecher watched and saluted the parade from the porch of the Kenneally and Tarantino office on Glen Street.
