Zombies, ghouls, goblins, superheroes, floats, marchers and more are wanted as the Pittsfield Halloween Parade seeks participants.
Mayor Daniel Bianchi and the Pittsfield Department of Community Development Recreation Program have announced that the Pittsfield Halloween Parade will be held at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 25, on Tyler Street.
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; for the parade, all float entries must have a theme that is Halloween-related.
The deadline for completed forms is Friday, Oct. 4.
A float seminar for all organizations building floats will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18, in room 203 of City Hall, 70 Allen St. A representative from each organization/school building a float is required to attend.
All new parade participants must attend a mandatory meeting at 6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 21, in room 203 of City Hall. One representative of each new organization must attend the meeting if they plan to be in the parade.
