The good new is there’s plenty to do this weekend all around the state (yippee!). The bad news is it’s almost all on Saturday (boo!). So choose wisely this weekend folks.
In Middlebury, there’s the Walk to End Child Abuse, 5k walk/run in Middlebury hosted by Prevent Child Abuse Vermont. Families with children, elders and other community members will parade through the streets to support safe, happy and healthy children. If you want to stick close to town this weekend, there is also the Middlebury Farmer’s Market and a story hour at the Morgan Horse Museum on Main Street.
Rather hit the road? Head to Vergennes for their annual Vergennes Day city-wide celebration. The event actually kicks off tonight with a street dance from 7:00pm – 10:00 pm and continues all day Saturday with loads of family friendly events. Sign up for the 5k or 10k if you’re feeling extra frisky or try your luck at the rubber ducky races! Times and costs vary for this event, so be sure to check out the full schedule here.
Young skaters (that’s skate boarders to all you laymen out there) should race to Rutland for the Third Annual Game of S.K.A.T.E competition. This is an intermediate and advanced competition only, which means the littlest skaters might just want to watch the big kids!

Last up on our list this weekend is a book talk happening in at the Phoenix Books in downtown Burlington about a nonconformist, unorthodox set of parenting rules.
True or false:
Boys can wear tutus.
Sex ed starts in preschool.
“I hate you!” is nothing personal.
Author Heather Schumake will discuss her book It’s OK Not to Share and Other Renegade Rules for Raising Competent and Compassionate Kids. Don’t miss this fabulous opportunity to learn about new ways to parent outside the box!
