The Vermont History Expo
at the Turnbridge Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday transports families to the days of small Vermont farms, rural country stores and homespun clothing. Children's activities, including a "musical petting zoo," a 19th century games area and a hands-on archaeology dig, make the past come alive.
On Sunday afternoon, attend the grand opening of "Walk Through Time,"
an educational exhibit along a nature trail in Isle La Motte that illustrates 4.6 billion years of evolution.
Across the lake at Fort Ticonderoga, a Living History Weekend
on Saturday and Sunday allows visitors to imagine what it was like to be a soldier onboard a boat in the summer of 1776.
Finally, go back to your own
childhood on Saturday with a trip to Buttered Noodles to meet Brother and Sister
from the beloved Berenstain Bears books — a series that got started way back in 1963 — and participate in crafts and story times throughout the day.
Have a great weekend!
You'll be able to revisit the past this weekend with a handful of events that take you back in time.
