Chicopee Comp. Marching Band Performs in Big E Parade

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Tuesday marked Salute to Chicopee Day at The Big E, and as a result, the city was well represented in the fair’s parade.

After marching through the fairgrounds, the Chicopee Comp. Marching Band made their way over to our broadcast position, near Gate 5 at Flag Plaza, and provided musical accompaniment while we continued the news live on ABC40.

Each day at the fair celebrates and honors a different organization, state, or community, which is also recognized during the 5:00 p.m. parade.

If you are heading to the fair, come on down to Gate 5 and grab a spot to watch the parade, and be sure to stop the ABC40 location nearby for a chance to be on TV, win prizes, and meet some of your favorite ABC40 personalities.
