GREAT AND SMALL — The Beacon Sloop Club hosted its annual Pumpkin Fest at Riverfront Park on Sunday (Oct. 16), including educational displays. Josh Kogan and his son, Alo, prepare to offer passersby a peek at the insects and tiny plants that populate the river. Their presence demonstrates the quality of the water.
