|Claire Shaw, 8, of Adams, attended a "Goddess Rising" fair in North Adams.|
Claire Shaw of Adams and Michaela Huberdeau of North Adams were among the "little goddesses" who participated at a Sept. 9 Goddess Rising event held at the Western Gateway Heritage State Park. The event featured artisan and retail sales booths as well as belly dancers, ballet dancers, a goddess parade, and other entertainment.

Williamstown's Fall Fusion event brought lots of activity to Water, Latham, and Spring streets. Caedy Schultz, membership coordinator for the Clark Art Institute and Mount Greylock Regional High School student Peter Glover staffed a Clark booth and passed out foil-wrapped chocolate candies, but ran into a slight problem: Saturday's warm temperatures caused the chocolates to soften up considerably, which proved messy when one tried to unwrap the sweets.

Among the events at the Cole Avenue Block Party was a bicycle helmet give-away and helmet fitting. Helmet recipients also pledged to wear the helmets. Amber Bryant volunteered during the give-away; here, she is fitting a helmet for James Fisher.

Dry, warm weather prevailed for part of the block party but when the skies darkened and the thunder erupted, three-year-old Hazel Scullin tried to keep the sound at bay.
Hazel Scullin, 3, was not a fan of the thunder that rumbled overhead during the Sept. 9 mid-afternoon.
A multi-photograph slideshow that highlights all three events will be posted soon at this web site.
