The Pittsfield Parade Committee is looking for banner carriers to volunteer for the 2014 Pittsfield Fourth of July Parade. Local school-aged children are invited to participate by carrying the banners of parade sponsors.

Carriers should be at least 11 years of age, since the parade route is long and the weather can be warm.

Those interested in volunteering to carry banners can call (413) 447-7763, visit the Pittsfield Parade website at or go to the Pittsfield Parade Facebook page.
