69th Annual Halloween Parade Seeks Participants

Zombies, Ghouls, Goblins, Superheroes, Floats, Marchers and more are wanted as the Pittsfield Halloween Parade seeks participants.  Mayor Dan Bianchi and the Pittsfield Department of Community Development Recreation Program has announced that the Pittsfield Halloween Parade will be held on Friday, October 25th at 7:00 p.m. on Tyler Street.  We encourage your school or community/civic group to participate in this Pittsfield tradition!  Every ‘unit’ will need to complete a General Entry Form, and those entering a float must also complete the Float Entry Form; for the parade, all float entries must have a theme that is Halloween related.  The deadline for completed forms is Friday, October 4th. 

There will be a float seminar for all organizations building floats.  If your organization/school would like to build a float, a representative must attend.  This seminar will be Wednesday, September 18th at 6:00 p.m. in room 203 of City Hall. 

All new parade participants must attend a mandatory meeting on Monday, October 21st in room 203 of City Hall, 70 Allen Street. The meeting begins at 6:00 p.m.  One representative of each new organization must attend a meeting if they plan to be in the parade.
