The North Adams Fall Foliage Parade is coming this fall
I don’t know about you but I’m so excited for fall here, especially in North Adams!
The theme this year will be “Holidays On Parade”!
This year, the annual fall parade celebrates a fun theme honoring all your favorite holidays. We at WUPE love being part of this event!
This year’s theme means honoring all the holidays, from Valentine’s Day and New Year’s, National Ice Cream Day, Halloween and everything in between! Interpret this theme any way you see fit in your tank, costume, and more! Just of all the great vacations you can choose from!
All members of the community are invited to participate. This much-loved event will take place on the first Sunday of October.
There will be some changes to the parade route this year.
This year’s parade route is 1.2 miles and mostly flat, making the parade more walkable for all ages and abilities. The shorter parade route also takes up less time for participants.
The intersection of State Street and Old State Street.
All parade participants will line up at Curran Highway between DiSanti Field (north point) and United Cerebral Palsy (south point); approximately 400 Curran Highway to 535 Curran Highway
The end point will be the intersection of Ashland Street and Washington Ave, as last year.
Since the new start point and staging area are different, traffic may detour via Old State Street to access parts of the Curran Expressway. The road will be fully closed along the parade route from 12:30 p.m.
Here are a few things you need to know if you want to be part of the parade this year.
Anyone can enter a float in the parade. Participate as a group, organization, club, sports team, school, church, bank, business or even as a group of friends or neighbors. Gather your family and make it special.
Town of North Adams says:
Parade floats are easy to make! Here is some information on ways to create a float of any size:
Anything that can be driven or pulled along the parade route can be made into a float. Examples include trays of all sizes, bicycles, golf carts, trackers, horses, pickup truck trays, etc.
Decorations for the float can be almost anything. Consider balloons, tissue paper, steamers, fringe, flags, garlands, decorative fabrics, pennant banners, tinsel, lights, wallpaper, home and office decor. the yard and nature objects – and don’t forget your floating jumpers and costumed walkers.
You can make a float for as little as a few hundred dollars or less. Consider forming a group to share the cost and collect supplies.
