Thank you so much for celebrating 10 years of Third Thursday!
Thank you to those who joined us for the celebration on July 21 with a food theme. And a special thanks to Mikey T’s, Studious Baker and Mary’s Carrot Cake for supplying the FREE cupcakes.
Third Thursday teamed up with the Ethnic Fair for July with food vendors throughout the half-mile stretch and Ethnic Fair performances on the stage near Park Square.
The miniature train rides from Roaming Railroad are back, as is the Community Art Tent and Outdoor Chalk Art Gallery. The Carr Hardware Bounce House returns again this year. The Pittsfield Boys and Girls Club will host its Fun Zone for the third year in a row with bean bag toss, arts and crafts and more.
