The Tub Parade is a beautiful display of festive carriages and horses decorated with flowers from various local landmarks. The parade is a tradition dating back to the Gilded Age of the Berkshires (late 1800's). New England's rich and famous owners of palatial summer "cottages" — the likes of Westinghouse, Carnegie and Proctor — established the friendly competition. In a form of highbrow "one-upmanship," the wealthy summer residents would showcase their finest animals and carriages by covering them with the choicest selections from their gardens, and take them on parade.
