Contact Renee Breault at 635-1487 or for details.

Saturday’s highlights include a “Welcome Back to Vermont” Festival from 2 to 4 p.m. with a pop-up marketplace, kids’ activities and more. There will be a free concert by the Aerolites from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. on the South Lawn (rain location: Dibden Center for the Arts), followed by fireworks weather permitting.

In addition, the SHAPE Center will be free and open to the public through Sunday, Sept. 23!
