The Pittsfield Department of Community Development Recreation Program has announced that the 74th annual Pittsfield Halloween Parade will be held 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26 on Tyler Street. Zombies, ghouls, goblins, superheroes, floats, marchers and more are wanted as planning for this popular Pittsfield tradition gets underway.

School, community, and civic groups are encouraged to participate. 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.12.

There will be a seminar on building floats at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept.17 in Room 203 at City Hall, 70 Allen St. A representative of each organization/school interested in building a float for the parade is required to attend this meeting.
