It’s Going To Be A Busy Day…

It’s going to be a great day in Montpelier, along with the 29th Annual Toy Run, farmers’ market and sidewalk sale, this year there will be a Vintage Trailer show downtown.

Montpelier Police Chief Tony Facos has told us that the trailers may be parked on State Street between Main and Elm but they will not interfere with the parade route or motorcycle parking. We hope to see you on the 8th to support this charitable event for Shriners Hospitals for Children.
