Halloween came early on Sunday as hundreds of people lined the boulevards of Boulevard for the second annual Boo-le-Bark dog parade. Costumed canines and their humans enjoyed popsicles, food-truck munchies, iced coffee and music from the Rev. Connor Tribble at Jittery Joe's Roasting Co., all to benefit Athens Pets, a local organization that places lost and abandoned animals with new homes. Flagpole intern Nicole Adamson was there to document the decorated doggos.

Hundreds of Athens-area children received a free book this month, thanks to a $3,000 grant from Zombie Donuts & Coffee via the First Book UGA program.
The Athens-Clarke County Library's Summer Reading program invites children from birth to age 11 to attend special events and fill out reading logs to win prizes. Children who read at least 50 books or log at least 25 hours of reading can choose a book as a prize.
"Super readers"—those who read at least 100 books or 50 hours—also received a golden ticket to a Willy Wonka-themed party July 26. Flagpole contributing photographer Richard Hamm was there.

On Thursday night, Paul McCartney played the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth as part of his “One on One” tour, which started last April. It was obvious the venue was thrilled to have him, considering earlier this year it lured him to play by naming a new street, Paul McCartney Boulevard, in his honor. Upon arriving to the venue, I was greeted with a huge banner that read “Welcome to Duluth, Paul.”
Despite occasional heavy rainfall, this year's AthFest Music & Arts Festival drew large crowds downtown for three days of music, food, art and much more. Check out images from the weekend below, courtesy of Flagpole photographers Austin Steele and Caroline Elliott:
