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.

North Adams' Pandemic State of Emergency Expires June 15

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city's state of emergency comes to an end next Tuesday, June 15, 459 days after it was declared at the start of the novel coronavirus pandemic on March 13, 2020.
In a statement announcing its termination, Mayor Thomas Bernard cautioned that it doesn't mean residents should throw caution to the wind. 
"This action does not mean that the COVID-19 pandemic is over, but with the expiration of the Governor's emergency declaration, I wanted to align the city with the statewide status," he wrote. "For everyone in our community, this means that I encourage you please to continue to take sensible public health precautions for cleaning and personal hygiene, avoiding gatherings and public spaces when you're not feeling well, and continuing to practice self-care.
"People who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear a face covering and practice social distancing in most cases, and to get vaccinated as soon as you can."
