To ring in the St. Patrick’s Day weekend, the city of Pittsfield is hosting some very special guests.
A delegation from Pittsfield’s sister city of Ballina, Ireland will be shown the latest Pittsfield has to offer. After traveling to Ballina himself last summer, Pittsfield Mayor Dan Bianchi and others are holding a welcoming reception at city hall Friday at noon.
“I like to think of it as our counterpart to Pleasantville here in Pittsfield,” Bianchi said. “They’re just a wonderful community.”
