An annual event in early June is the Strolling of the Heifers through downtown Brattleboro in southern Vermont. If you are from an urban area, the sight of young cows being led somewhat reluctantly through the downtown area is rather an astonishing site. It's also a fun parade with bystanders and participants dressed up as cows. You'll even see a dog dressed as a cow in the slide show! The parade usually starts on a Saturday morning, around 10 am and ends up at the Brattleboro Community Common where you'll find various dairy farming expostions, concessions selling or giving away dairy products and demonstrations of milking.
We've covered this annual event with slide shows and video over the years. Here are links to the videos:
