On Friday, foodie families can enjoy an eclectic array of local grub from over 20 vendors when the Truck Stop
returns to ArtsRiot in Burlington. The event starts at 5 p.m. If you're bringing young kids, get there early to avoid the lines that tend to form later in the evening.
On Saturday, truck enthusiasts have two opportunities to get up close and personal with voluminous vehicles. At Big Truck Day
at St. Joseph's School in Burlington, kids can get in the drivers' seats of fire, dump and tow trucks. Live music, a bake sale and a raffle round out the event. In Hinesburg, Big Truck Day & Children's Festival
includes crafts, face painting, a bouncy house and a barbecue, as well as tractors, school buses and more.
Athletic types work up a sweat during the 'Move Your Can' Fun Run
in Colchester. Proceeds and food donations benefit area food shelves. In Williston
, a 1K fun run, 5k walk/run, music and bounce house make for a fun-filled morning of fitness.
Looking for some indoor entertainment? Phoenix Books in Essex hosts a Total Takeover Party
to celebrate the Timmy Failure
series of detective books for middle grade readers. Kids can pose with a five-foot tall inflatable polar bear and participate in activities, raffles and giveaways.
There's rain in the forecast this weekend, but the temps will be mild. In between showers, venture out to enjoy some family fun. Or put on your galoshes and slickers and celebrate in the rain.
