Volunteers Always Welcome
The Pittsfield 4th of July Parade Committee is looking for volunteers to help make the July 4th Parade bigger and better than ever.
While the exciting event occurs on a single day, the planning, preparation and fundraising takes nearly a whole year.
We meet monthly throughout the year, and weekly as we get closer to July 4th, and hope that more people will take an interest in helping us bring this historic event to the city.
Upcoming Meetings in 2019:
March 20th, April 17th, May 1st, May 8th, May 15th, May 29th, June 5th, June 12th, June 19th, July 3rd
The parade committee meets at the Polish Falcon Club, 32 Bel Air Avenue in Pittsfield at 7pm.
Pittsfield 4th of July Parade Announces 2019 Float Workshops
The Pittsfield Parade Committee has announced their Float Workshop Schedule. These are MANDATORY workshops. Any group entering a float or vehicle in the parade MUST attend one workshop.
“Float-Building Workshops are designed to bring together potential float-builders and vehicle entrees to learn the rules and regulations of putting together an award-winning float for the 4th of July Parade,” said Pittsfield Parade Committee President Peter Marchetti. “Ideas will be suggested on float construction, types of materials to use, size regulations, safety issues, and an understanding of the categories for your entry.”
