A rainy day did not hold back the crowd of owners and their furry friends in attendance at the ‘Mutt March’ on Saturday, May 4, in downtown Monongahela.  Said to be the largest dog parade in the Mon Valley, the large and small, but all adorable dogs walked down Main Street to Chess Park around 10:00AM, followed by food, vendors, a photographer, a costume contest, and a DJ on hand at Chess Park.
