Get to this parade early. They close off the entrances to Vergennes from Rte 7. We were left to park at the Chevy dealership at the corner of Rte. 7 and Monkton Rd and walk in to town. Folks with little ones might bring a stroller or wagon for just this reason. We didn't make it to the green, but sat in front of the HS which proved to be just fine as this is the starting point for the parade.
Bring a bag as there is loads...more
