Vermonters got to experience a taste of the islands, the Lake Champlain Islands, that is at the Islands Farm and Food Festival.
Families could enjoy food and music, plus farming education programs.
This year, festival organizers reached out to cyclists to strategize how to better make the Islands a biking destination.
“As a result of an economic development forum that was held in the Islands in February, when a group of residents said you know, one of the most important things we can do for the economy in the islands is to build on a reputation as a great biking destination,” – Emily Bodecker, Executive Director at Local Motion.
The local motion bike ferry operates seven days a week until Labor Day.
