A Day in Vermont

It's not Paris but Vermont can be pretty interesting as well.  My daughter & I drove out to Bennington for the town's annual Mayfest.  Some friends of ours had booths at this very large event so we went to check it out.

Bennington is a cute little New England Village.  And on the last Saturday in May they block off one of the their main streets for about 1/8 mile of crafts, food, and other miscellaneous vendors.  Foot traffic is

I was surprised at how big an event this was.  As there's a food court on a side street and music in 3 locations,  I have to say it looks somewhat like Start on the Street in Worcester though about half the size.We bought a few things from some of the farmer's market vendors, a little something from Sieber Designs, and had Indian samosas for lunch.  We even visited the local chocolate shop.

The scenery along Route 9 is always pretty spectacular.  We did see some damage remains from the flooding last year though much of it has been cleaned up.

On the way home we stopped for a bit at an antique and flea market on the side of the road.  We were looking for steampunk supplies but settled for some cheap paperbacks instead.

It was a beautiful day for a drive.  If the weather next year is as nice I recommend you head out to Bennington for their Mayfest.
