Fall Foliage Parade Theme Is 'Home for the Holidays'

Print Story | Email Story
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Northern Berkshire Fall Foliage Parade returns for its 66th year with the theme of "Holidays on Parade."
The parade steps off on Sunday, Oct 2, at 1 p.m. from the corner of State and Old State streets and travels to Main Street. It's hosted by 1Berkshire and the city of North Adams.
Groups, businesses and individuals can participate through donations, sponsorships, marching and making floats. 
Anyone or group can create a float for the parade around the holiday theme -- Valentine's Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Any platform that can be pulled or driven can be made into a float; it doesn't have to be expensive but you could find a business to sponsor you.
If you don't have a group to march or build a float with, you can volunteer as a banner holder. The parade is always looking for volunteers to help put on the event.
