Northampton, DoozyDo Parade

September 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT

Northampton Neighbors’ DoozyDo Parade will take place on Saturday, September 23, 2023, rain or shine. The parade will begin at 11:00 am and last 1 – 2 hours.

Inspired by Pasadena’s Doo-Dah Parade, a super fun alternative to the traditional Rose Bowl Parade, this Fall’s DoozyDo Parade will put the fun in fundraiser with a joyful, inclusive, unconventional celebration in–and of–the City of Northampton. The DoozyDo Parade is an opportunity to come together for a compelling cause. It will raise awareness and financial support for Northampton Neighbors, a volunteer-based organization providing free programs and services so that older adults can live independent, engaged lives in our homes and communities.

What is the parade route?
The parade kicks off from 33 Hawley Street and ends in Pulaski Park. See the Parade Route Map.

Where’s the best spot for viewing the parade?
Pretty much anywhere on Main Street.

Where can I get a selfie with the Gargoyle mascot?
In Pulaski Park at the end of the parade.

Attention: Crafters!

Forbes Library will have a team in the DoozyDo parade on September 23th at 11 AM. We hope you can join us in crafting, making music, and marching on this fun day!

Our theme for our parade team is “Forbes for All” with a fun aquatic twist: we will create large and small flying fish puppets. Feel free to work with us on some puppets, banners, swirling streamers, props, or see where your inspiration leads you and come craft!
