Here’s Where To Watch The Berkshires Annual Fall Parade This Weekend
As we all know, the 67th annual Fall Foliage Parade is this Sunday put on by 1Berkshire. This year’s parade theme is Once Upon a Time in North Berkshire, a celebration of children’s books and fairytales. I can remember attending the parade going as far back as being a little guy. Nothing beats hearing all the awesome Marching Bands, Musicians, and even Clowns march down through the streets of North Adams.
I even had the privilege to march in the Hoosac Valley Middle/High School band through the years playing trumpet. Which I can certainly do miss for sure. After graduation I even ran TV camera for Northern Berkshire Community Television's live parade broadcasts which by the way if you can't make it to the parade and you have spectrum cable, you catch the Parade live on TV.
Below is a list of the best places to watch the parade (in my opinion).
State Street, by far my favorite since this is exactly where the TV broadcast takes place. Remember to smile for the camera!
Still on State Street, only this time outside The Goodwill Store. This is where you will usually find some food trucks serving up some delicious French Fries and Fried Dough. Who wants to pick me up some and I'll give them the cash when I arrive in the station vehicle? LOL.
Main Street of course is the place you'll find the main PA announcer and the judges. I remember being told in the high school band to look the sharpest when playing for the judges. We actually ended up winning 1st place numerus times!
Ashland Street, this location in my opinion should be by far a perfect place to watch a parade since Cumberland Farms moved down the street. I mean why wouldn't it be the best place? It's a vacate gas station with an empty parking lot.
I'll driving in the New Country 94.7 and Whoopee FM vehicle, if you wave I'll wave back!
Also, the locations listed above are first come first serve. So, come early for the best seat in the house!
