Columbus Day 2016

Hello!

I have just booked a holiday for next year with my wife, where we will be in New England last week in September and first two weeks in October chasing the spectacular display of the New England Fall.

We have discovered that we will be in Great Barrington on 10th October for Columbus Day. Can anyone please advise if there are any associated celebrations in the area? I tried looking for details of this year but can't find anything.

Any details will be gratefully received1

Ian G

Columbus Day celebrations are not common. When they do occur, I assume they are primarily in Italian neighborhoods. I doubt that there's much of anything going on in Great Barrington related to the holiday.

Seriously doubt there's any celebrations associated with Columbus day in that area. Probably a few minor protests though.

Great Barrington used to have a great fall fair, but that's been gone for over 20 years now.

It's pretty much just a bank holiday. Some of the ski resorts may be open running the lifts that day though so you can get a nice view of the colors and there will be good shopping sales that weekend if that interests you at all.

Viewing he fall colors from a ski lift must be nice. Which are the ski resorts you are speaking about? Will be in Lenox during this time and would like to experience this.

Thanks
