|One of the funniest events of the Annual Egg Festival is the Kiddie Parade always held on the Thursday of Egg Festival Week. The parade is for children to march, ride or bike along the parade route with their parents and friends. Sp”Egg”tacular Circus is the theme for this year's Egg Festival scheduled for Monday, July 15th through Saturday, July 20th. Organizers are expecting an exciting Kiddie Parade the evening of Thursday, July 18th. The children's parade starts at 6 PM sharp. All children and their parents will line up at the Pittsfield Municipal Parking Lot. The parade route leads out of the Municipal Parking Lot onto Middle Street, Somerset Avenue and then down Main Street to Manson Park. The Pittsfield Police Department will be on hand to direct the parade route.
The Kiddie Parade is the official event starting up the Kiwanis Karnival as the children lead the way through downtown Pittsfield to Manson Park. As the parade wraps up the Karnival opens with plenty of exciting rides and games from 6:30 pm through 10 PM. Parents are encouraged to mark the date for a fun-packed Kiddie Parade. Children can dress up and decorate their bikes, wagons and carts for a Sp”egg”tacular Circus time. The parade makes for a great memory for area children moving along the parade route waving to their friends and neighbors.
