The Capital City’s largest festival of the year returns with a bang this Sunday with an Independence Day party for the ages. Family-friendly fun fills the Statehouse lawn and downtown area all afternoon and evening, featuring something for every taste: a food truck cavalcade, the Montpelier Mile Road Race, FamilyFest on the grass and a celebratory parade followed by live music. Around town, the Vermont History Museum offers free admission, the Montpelier Fire Department provides its trucks for photo shoots, and Langdon Street Tavern throws an unbeatable block party. And, of course, the day closes with an awe-inspiring fireworks display.
