Strolling of the Heifers

Parade in Brattleboro

Brattleboro's fun-spirited June celebration of community agriculture begins with flower-garlanded heifers mooing their way down Main St. Then come the bagpipes, 4H'-ers, Vermont politicians, bad cow jokes from the parade’s commentators, excrement-scooping superheroes (complete with capes!), antique tractors and synchronized shopping-cart performances by the local food co-op. Don't miss the crowning of Miss Ver-mooont, prettiest heifer of them all!
