The Halloween Parade and Pumpkin Walk-About will take place Friday, Oct. 28, for area children. Marchers will meet at the corner of Main and Pine streets at 6 p.m. and march up Main Street to the Town Offices for cider and doughnuts.

After the party, take a walk-about outside the Stockbridge Library and see lighted pumpkins carved by local businesses and area children. Spooky stories and more fun treats (or tricks?) will be offered inside.

Children interested in showcasing a Jack O'Lantern of their own should drop them off at the library between 5 and 6 p.m. They may be brought home at the end of the evening.

In case of rain the parade is canceled. Events will continue in the Library.

These events are sponsored by the Stockbridge Chamber of Commerce, Stockbridge Library, Town of Stockbridge, and the Red Lion Inn.

Information: Chamber of Commerce at 413-298-5200.
