NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Families enjoyed a morning of fun with local nonprofits offering games, art projects, and giveaways on Saturday morning at Noel Field Athletic Complex.
The annual Fall Foliage Children's Races and Family Fair was presented by Northern Berkshire United Way, the city of North Adams' Community Events, Adams Youth Center Inc., and sponsored by Greylock Federal Credit Union.
The annual event kicks off the Fall Foliage Festival along with the release of the Fall Foliage Leaf Hunt clues. The festival continues through Sunday, Oct. 6, when 1Berkshire presents the 64th annual Fall Foliage Parade to conclude the festivities.
Omer Black delighted the crowd with magic before the racers lined up for their races. The winners were presented with medals by Mayor Thomas Bernard at the end of the event.
All participants received participation ribbons. There were several neck-and-neck races where a photo finish was used to determine first and second places.

MCLA Men Win, Stay Atop MASCAC Standings

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- The MCLA men's basketball team has been riding high as it is off to its best conference start since the 2010-11 season.
Saturday afternoon, the Trailblazers had to work hard but ultimately earned their eighth straight victory with a hard fought 67-64 win over Framingham State.
MCLA now moves to 11-4 overall but, more importantly, stays atop the MASCAC at 4-0. The Rams dip to 1-15 overall and 0-3 in the conference.
MCLA led for most of the first half and held a 29-23 edge at the half.  Framingham scored the first seven points out of the locker room to take the lead at 30-29. The teams traded buckets for awhile but eventually the host Rams took the lead at 42-38, their largest of the half with 11:19 remaining.
