Go big or go home, goes the old expression. It seems RockFire organizers applied that adage to planning this annual celebration of Barre’s granite history. “Our 10th anniversary celebration is bigger and better than ever!” reads the event website. In addition to the customary molten-metal and fire performances, the fest includes a luminary-lit walk on a 1.5-mile route featuring eight stages where musicians channel Scottish, Italian and French Canadian sounds that hark back to Barre’s past. Millstone Trails are open Saturday and Sunday for visitors to explore the area’s abandoned quarry sites. See rockfirevt.com for the full schedule.
