The Berkshire Chamber of Commerce and the city of North Adams are proud to announce that the 54th Fall Foliage Festival.  On Saturday, October 3, a Farmer’s Market will be held in the Saint Anthony Municipal Parking Lot  across from MASS MoCA.  The Autumn Arts & Crafts Festival, from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm, takes place on the sidewalk on the north side of Main Street. The Parade will be held on Sunday, October 4, 2009, beginning at 1:00 pm.  The Fall Foliage Festival Parade Committee selected “Taste of the Berkshires” as the theme for the 2009 parade.  This theme is an opportunity for the community to experience all of the flavors of Berkshire County.  The 54th Annual Fall Foliage Festival Parade Grand Marshal will be Carl Jenkins, former director of the Drury High School band, Adjunct Teacher of Oboe, and part-time Coordinator of Fine and Performing Arts for the city of North Adams.  A half century ago, the leadership of the North Adams Chamber of Commerce deemed the advent of the fall foliage season a time for celebration, given that the natural beauty of the surrounding mountain ranges inspired visitors from all over the Eastern United States.
