Woonsocket – The 44th Autumnfest is on track to be a tremendous celebration.  One of the highlights of Autumnfest is always the 10-Division Parade.  The parade is held the morning of Columbus Day.  This year that day is October 10, 2022.  Now is the time to secure your school, group or organization placement in this year’s parade.
