Weather forecasts called for light rain all day Wednesday with temperatures in the mid 60s in Columbia. After a few days of exceptionally warm fall weather, some dusted off their umbrellas for use.

COLUMBIA — Last week's best photos captured images of events around Columbia, including the Boone County Fair Horse Show and the Monster Bike Bash. Residents flew kites at Cosmo-Bethel Park for the One Sky, One World event, and a rainy Wednesday didn't stop residents from getting outside.

In this photo by Marysa Greenawalt, Steve Batliner flies a dual-line stunt kite at the One Sky, One World kite flying event. The event, which took place Sunday at Cosmo-Bethel Park, was part of an annual international kite flying celebration. Batliner said he's accumulated about 50 to 60 kites.

Yi-Chen Lee captured this image of Matt Lamkey and Abigail Starman biking along the MKT Nature and Fitness Trail during the annual Monster Bike Bash. The ride began at Shiloh Bar and Grill and ended in Rocheport.
