Middlebury's Festival On The Green
Every July we go to Middlebury to visit Maddy and Poppy the week of Middlebury's Festival On The Green. This is something we look forward to all year and it is our favorite week of the entire year! All last week we packed our lunch and attended the festival's "Brown Bag" concert series under the tent in Middlebury's beautiful green. We always arrived about an hour early to get the perfect seats and we had the added bonus of watching the performers warm up before their performance. We enjoyed all of the performances -- watching marionettes perform the classic fairy tale of Jack and the Beanstalk, listening to world music, learning about musical instruments played around the world, watching a physical comedian, and listening to folk music. We are back in Maine now but we will be talking about all of the beautiful summer memories we made in Vermont for a very, very long time to come.
