Dog Day of Fall Parade
Some 50 pups turned out Saturday morning for the 1st annual Dog Day of Fall Parade in North Adams, Mass. This newest addition to the Fall Foliage Festival featured dogs of all sizes dressed up for the fall season. Some took on the theme from this year's festival of "Our Heroes" and came dressed as police officers, postal carriers and valiant steeds. Others just had fun as little devils, 'Babe' the pig and pea pods. Look for more photos on Monday.

The newly organized Berkshire Advanced Manufacturing Training and Education Center, or BAMTEC, had offered a $1 for the 56-year-old school with the intent to invest upwards of $11 million into the building and another $3 million in equipment.
