The theme for the 38th Annual Stars and Stripes Festival and Parade this year is Lyndon Rocks! which of course lends itself to all things musical, but could go in other directions as well. If you would like to be a vendor in Bandstand Park for the day, the fee is only $35.00 for a 10 by 10 foot space. Having a float in the parade is a great way to promote or celebrate your business or organization to the thousands of spectators who line the parade route. Vendor and float forms are available online at www.lyndonvermont.com. You can also pick them up and drop them off at the Cobleigh Library or call 626-9696 to have them mailed to you. Be a part of the celebration on Saturday, July 21st!!
Location: Downtown Lyndonville, VT
