PITTSFIELD -- The Pittsfield Parade Committee is seeking volunteers to serve as banner carriers for the 2014 Pittsfield 4th of July Parade.

Local school-aged children are invited to participate by carrying the banners of parade sponsors. Due to the length of the parade route and the weather, banner carriers should be at least 11 years old.

Those interested in volunteering can call (413) 447-7763, visit the Pittsfield Parade’s website at www.pittsfieldparade.com, or go to the Pittsfield Parade Facebook page.
