The City of Pittsfield has unfortunately canceled its Halloween Parade once again this year, but there is still plenty of fun to be had. Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer recently announced that even though the parade is canceled, Trick-or-Treat is still on and that the city would have some virtual events to take the place of the parade.

A virtual event indeed was announced today, and Ghouls and Gals of all ages are being sought to take part in the festivities!

City of Pittsfield residents are invited to enter the city’s 2021 virtual Halloween contests. There are several categories. They include Pumpkin Decorating, Costume, and Home Decorating.
