SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – In less than two months, the Cat in the Hat and other giant inflatables will make their way down Main Street for the annual Parade of the Big Balloons. But organizers need lots of volunteers to help guide those big balloons along the route.

The Spirit of Springfield is seeking at least 200 volunteer “balloon wranglers” for the parade, which takes place on Friday, November 28. To volunteer, you need to be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 90 pounds, and you must be available beginning at 9:00 A.M. on parade day.

If you are interested in volunteering, you are urged to call the Spirit of Springfield at (413) 733-3800 or e-mail staff@spiritofspringfield.org. You can also register online at their website: spiritofspringfield.org.
