“The day couldn’t have been more tailor-made. It was gorgeous that day,” Senecal said. “And it all went like clockwork.”

Because no tickets are sold, officials have no good way to measure the crowd, which typically numbers in the thousands.

VERGENNES — Work has begun to correct longstanding drainage problems in the Crosby Farms development area, City Manager Mel Hawley told aldermen on at their Aug. 21 meeting.
