Vermont's Long Trail Festival Hailed as Success

Brent Curtis writes in the 21 August 2007 Rutland (VT) Herald that the
"Promoters of the Rutland Long Trail Festival said the success of their three-day event during the weekend guarantees that they are in it for the long haul."
They attracted "more than 1,000 people" to the 3-day "concert and outdoor extravaganza."

The organizers'
"dream is to make the event an annual stop for hikers in the same way the annual Trail Days festival in Damascus, Va., which straddles the Appalachian Trail, has become over three decades.

"During its first year, the Long Trail Festival attracted hikers hailing from as far away as Canada, West Virginia and Georgia, he said."
Sounds about right.

The article's headline is: "Long Trail fest looks like a go as annual event".
