The 4th of July will be here before you know it, and Pittsfield's famous and once televised parade will be taking place once again. However, this mega display of floats and all out entertainment costs a lot of money to put on, just ask Peter Marchetti.

The parade committee's goal this year is $85,000! If you have the means, please make a donation at pittsfieldparade.com.

This year's theme is "Moments That Made America", and the parade kicks off Wednesday, July 4 at 10 AM.
