Strolling of the Heifers: Who's in the parade?


Brattleboro — The order of march for the Strolling of the Heifers parade in Brattleboro has been provided by parade master Rick Chapin. The parade starts at 10 a.m. sharp on Saturday, June 4.

The parade begins on Flat Street, turns up Main Street, continues on Putney Road, turns left on Park Place past the Brattleboro Common (where the heifers peel off to find some shade at the east end of the park), and continues to the gates of the Brattleboro Retreat on Linden Street. When it's over the crowd follows the parade to the 11-acre, all-day Slow Living Expo on the Common and the Retreat grounds.
