Third Thursdays is RAIN OR SHINE!

Nature is such a tease! One minute raindrops are falling on our head, then the next, it's sunshine all around... No matter what, we're still going forward with Pittsfield's biggest party (with a few minor changes).

The performers who were scheduled to be on the CITY STAGE on Union Street will now be moved inside Barrington Stage (on 30 Union Street). Also, Berkshire Rocks Youth Jam, scheduled to perform on the City Hall steps will now be located at the Underground Pub inside the Crowne Plaza.

Other than that, everything is still a go! North Street will remain CLOSED, from 4:30pm - 8pm so that you can check out all the outdoor vendors, artisans, and foodies who will be setting up on North Street.

We've got tons of things going on for this first Third Thursday of the year, from great shopping deals at all the great stores, fantastic food, noteworthy performances, hula-hooping, a happy birthday party for the YMCA, bouncy castles, great works of art, margaritas & a live radio show, a midnight showing of Pirates of the Caribbean (I'm out of breath just typing this up, and that's not even half of it!) -- a little rain isn't going to stop us!

Come out downtown to enjoy all the great things Pittsfield has to offer!
