The Pittsfield Department of Community Development Recreation Program has announced that the Pittsfield Halloween Parade will be held on Friday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. Schools and community/civic groups are encouraged 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. All float entries must have a theme that is Halloween related. The deadline for completed forms is Friday, Oct. 5.

A representative from each organization/school building a float must attend the float seminar to be held Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 6 p.m. in room 203 of City Hall, 70 Allen St.

One representative of each organization must attend a mandatory meeting if they plan to be in the parade as a float, band or marching unit. Meetings will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 17, and Monday, Oct. 22, in room 203 of City Hall. Notify the Recreation Activities Coordinator with a meeting date.
