Great Weather Predictions, Great Week Planned for Northern Berkshires

By Susan Bush
12:00AM / Friday, July 29, 2005

A well-known tune terms them “lazy” and “hazy” but the summer days-and nights- of the upcoming week should be anything but boring. And local weather forecasters are predicting fine weather conditions for the Northern Berkshire events ahead.

North Adams Weekend

In North Adams tonight [July 29], the Steeplecats host the Holyoke Giants at Joe Wolfe Field for a 7 p.m. New England Collegiate Baseball League game. Tickets are available at the gate. Those who attend the game will be introduced to members of the Northern Berkshire Neighbors organization baseball teams. The Greylock Sluggers, UNO Neighborhood Nightmares, Brayton Hill Road Dogs, and Mohawk Forest Cats are expected to take the field for the singing of the National Anthem during the game’s opening ceremony.

Also tonight, at 8 p.m., the Mettawee River Theater Company will present an outdoor performance at Windsor Lake. Actors with the troupe will perform an abbreviated version of the play “The Caucasian Chalk Circle.”

A farmer’s market will be held on July 30 at the St. Anthony municipal parking lot [across from the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art on Marshall Street]. The market opens at 8 a.m. and is scheduled to close at noon.

Terry A La Berry and Friends are scheduled to perform a children’s concert at the Natural Bridge State Park beginning at 1 p.m. on July 31. Terry A La Berry is well known as the drummer for David Grover and the Big Bear Band. The state park is on Route 8, which is accessible by following Route 2 east [Union Street] to the junction of Routes 2 and 8, bear left onto Route 8 [Beaver Street headed toward Clarksburg] and watch for the Natural Bridge State Park sign. A $2 per car parking fee is required.

Later on July 31 at Windsor Lake, the Flying Garbanzos will perform beginning at 7 p.m.. The musical group is known for a repertoire of traditional, contemporary and original tunes with Celtic, French-Canadian, and Appalachian style, and the group has been known to deliver swing or Latin-tinged selections. A substitute fiddler will play in place of musician Eric Buddington. The event is free.

Susan B. Anthony Days in Adams

In Adams, David Grover and the Big Bear Band will offer a free performance at 2 p.m. July 30 on the Park Street Town Hall lawn. Children’s activities are scheduled beginning at 1 p.m. with sidewalk chalk art and face-painting. Children may use the concrete Town Hall walkway for a chalk “canvas,” and chalk is being donated by the Adams Youth Center. Leo Club members will paint young faces. A “Cruz Night” hosted by the Night Cruzers Corvette Club is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. on Park Street.

The “Pedal and Plod” event kicks off at 8:30 a.m. on July 31. Registration for the event begins at 6:30 a.m.. at the Masonic Temple at 62 Center St.. The popular event features a four-mile run or walk through the downtown area followed by cycling race covering about 22 miles.

On Aug. 1, the Park Street “Street Fair” is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. and continue until 9 p.m.. The street will close to vehicle traffic and downtown visitors are encouraged to shop and dine amidst a festival atmosphere.

An Aug. 2 free Town Hall Lawn Concert featuring the Misty Blues group is scheduled; the event is free and those planning to attend may bring blankets, towels, or lawn-style chairs for seating.

An Aug. 3 Victorian Lawn Party is scheduled as the Susan B. Anthony Days finale. The 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. event will occur at the Town Hall Lawn and highlights include period costumes and carriage rides.
