What a great day for a parade.
From Fenway Park to the banks of the Charles, Bostonians lined up early for a chance to see the 2013 World Champion Boston Red Sox - and doesn't that sound good to hear?
When the procession of Duck Boats got to the Boston Marathon finish line in Copley Square, it stopped. Jonny Gomes put the World Series trophy and a Boston 617 Strong jersey on the finish line. Then the players and fans listened and joined in a chorus of "God Bless America."
Glenn Cabo shows more of the scene:

A big frog led a parade around the Frog Pond today during the city's Halloween pumpkin festival, which featured floating pumpkins, giant bubbles, kettle corn and a chance to go down a slide while dressed as a princess.
And Tom Menino was there, making his last Halloween appearance on the Common as mayor. He moved slowly through a dense knot of people as parents brought their kids up to meet him. He greeted and posed with every one of them:
Scott Eisen was on hand today as Bobby the Pig made the rounds of the Public Garden and ran into a guy dressed like his worst nightmare.
Photographer Scott Eisen has been spending some time with Ryan Peterson and his pet, Bobby.

Earlier this month, Bomba Sankofa put on a "bombazo" flash mob at Mozart Park in Jamaica Plain:
Sankofa uses Bomba -- a genre of Afro-Puerto Rican folk music -- to bridge cultures and create dialogues for multicultural understanding, healing and unity.
Or maybe whoever put out this space saver on Cornell Street could care less about Halloween and is just warning you what will happen if you dare to try to park in front of his house, lack of snow be damned.
Just in case there were any doubt, Django Bliss shows us for whom Mrs. Mallard is rooting in the World Series.
Throughout the day, a steady stream of people pulled into the Hilltop parking lot to pose with the cows. Even motorists on Rte. 1 slowed to take a gander at the cows on the restaurant's last day open.
