Summer Pops Concert at Crandall Park this Sunday

The Glens Falls Symphony presents the annual Summer Pops Concert at Crandall Park on Sunday, July 3rd, beginning at 7:30pm.  This annual family favorite Independence Day concert is free and open to all. The public is invited to come early, set up blankets and chairs, and enjoy food and beverages from a variety of food and beverage vendors. The concert will conclude with an impressive display of fireworks at dusk, set to John William’s “Summon the Heroes.”

New for this year’s July 3rd concert is our Youth Arts Experience! From 4-6pm, multiple local arts organizations like the World Awareness Children’s Museum, the Chapman Museum, the Hyde Collection, Crandall Public Library, the Wood Theater and ‘We Are Instrumental’ will have engaging art activities for children of all ages.

Executive Director Jennifer Brink states, “It is so wonderful to be able to bring this beloved concert back to its natural date of July 3 at last, and we especially look forward to engaging young people with fun, inspiring art activities in the afternoon. This year’s theme is about all the amazing work that our community has done, especially in the past two years, to lift each other up. We will be recognizing some hometown heroes, and giving recognition to service clubs like the Glens Fall Rotary Club, which has been serving our community for 100 years. Also coming to the stage are local elected officials including NY State Senator Dan Stec and former State Senator Betty Little to help us honor all military veterans, Queensbury Town Supervisor John Strough, and Glens Falls Mayor Bill Collins.”

Crandall Park is located on Upper Glen Street in Glens Falls, NY, next to the YMCA. Parking is available on surrounding streets. Be advised that there is absolutely no parking inside Crandall Park with the exception of handicapped parking with permits in the access road parking lot from Glen St. near the war memorial.

The Summer Pops concert is made possible by sponsorships from the following corporations and civic organizations: The Adirondack Trust Company, Ames Goldsmith, Al & Mary Jane Gilet, The City of Glens Falls, Glens Falls Hospital, Glens Falls National Bank, Glens Falls Rotary Club, Tom & Sally Hoy, Town of Queensbury, and Warren County Tourism.
