PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Unsure of what to do for New Years? We consulted Downtown Pittsfield Inc. to get the insider info on sales and events that will end 2021 in the right way.
"Come on out and enjoy New Years in Downtown Pittsfield," Downtown Pittsfield Executive Director Cheryl Mirer said.
She added that there is a good range happening from music to yoga and brunch. DPI's newsletter "News From The Heart of the Berkshires" outlines all of the things that Downtown Pittsfield has to offer on the holiday.
On Friday, Dec. 31, Mr. Doubtfire will play an acoustic set from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. with a full band from 9 p.m to midnight.
The Berkshires-based band has been together for six years and plays a variety of music from the 80s to today with a focus on keeping it "dancy, tightly arranged and dynamic - all the while welding heavy rock guitars."

Mission is taking reservations for the event. They can be called at (413) 499-1736 or messaged on social media.
