Scenes of Vermont Web Movies, presented in Quicktime 5
The Vermont Historical Society Annual Expo at the Tumbridge Fair grounds in Central Vermont is listed by the state as one of its 10 top attractions. The event is held in late June and attracts almost all the state's local historical societies. There are usually at least 100 exhibits ranging from period folk music to booths where you can look up your family history.
The editor of the Herald of Vermont, M. Dickey Drysdale, calls the event:
"A quintessential Vermont celebration." It is certainly an event for Vermonters. Most of the cars in the parking areas adjoining the Expo usually bear VT plates. But even if you are "from away" as they say here, you'll find things low key, less buzzy and more thoughtful than your average expo elsewhere. If you are any kind of history buff or interested in geneology, this Expo is worth a visit. And even if it rains, there are enough exhibits under tents that you will not be disapointed.
Tim Palmer-Benson explores some of the more colorful aspects of the expo in this Quicktime movie which runs 2.18 and is 4.8 MB/ (compressed down from about 400 MB!)
