nohoNoHo Parade and Pride Day will be held on Saturday, May 4, 2013 in Northampton, MA.  All ONA churches will march together to make a statement about the UCC’s message of inclusion and affirmation. Groups will meet at 11:00 AM in the parking lot behind Thrones Market (150 Main Street). The parade ends at the 3 County Fairgrounds (54 Fair Street), where the fun and celebration will continue.

The events will be held rain or shine. Parking and admission are free!  Lots of great LGBT educational information, food and retail vendors, fabulous entertainment and a children’s area will be featured.

FIRST CHURCHES IS “ALL IN!”  Please sign up to march with our group at Second Hour or on our Facebook page (First Churches of Northampton) or email us at


IF CAN’T WALK AND WOULD LIKE TO WATCH you may bring a lawn chair to our front lawn.  Space will be limited since Liz Ryan’s 10-piece brass band will play for part of the parade from our front.
