Another Big Event In The Berkshires Has Been Cancelled
The 65th annual Fall Foliage Parade is off, along with a host of other fall gatherings. The fate of the parade, usually held the first Sunday in October, has been up in the air for some time.
IBerkshires.com reports officials said because of restrictions in place to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, it would not be possible for the 65th Fall Foliage Parade along with the 53rd Greylock Ramble and 9th annual RambleFest to take place this October in a way that ensures the safety of residents, visitors, and participants.
Since 1955, North Adams has put on the festival and parade to showcase the beauty of autumn in the Berkshires for members of the community and tourists from out of town.
The Festival and parade have gone through many changes throughout the years, however, the original intention has remained consistent: a celebration of the fall foliage season.
