Holyoke and South Hadley have been gazing across the river at each other for more than two centuries. Once a year, for just a few hours, we shut down Veterans’ Memorial Bridge and meet in the middle for an ephemeral street festival that unites the two communities.

Bring your bicycle, unicycle, stilts, chalk, and skates. Blow a giant bubble, spin a hula hoop, shake a tambourine, and dance to the raucous rhythm of fifteen flamboyant drummers. Wear a costume or paint your face and help us transform the bridge into a spectacle of music, art, dance, food, and celebration.
