Brookfield Floating Bridge Celebration

On Saturday, May 23 from 11:00am - 4:00pm, members of Floating Bridge Food & Farms Cooperative will be taking part in the celebration of the newly rebuilt 8th (!) Floating Bridge across Brookfield’s Sunset Lake.  This historic one lane bridge, dating back to the 1820 original construction of logs strapped together on top of the frozen winter lake by Luther Adams and neighbors, has now been rebuilt to replicate the 7th bridge but with space-age flotation technology and wider accessible sidewalks.

Enjoy Food, Music, Crafts, Local Products, and Dedication Speeches from Congressman Peter Welch and Governor Peter Shumlin. The new bridge officially opens with a parade across the bridge on Saturday from 2:00 to 3:00 pm at which point the roadway, part of Vermont Route 65, will be open for regular traffic.

Saturday from 2:30-4:00pm Ariel's Cantina will offer $2.00 Green Mountain Girls Goat Tacos.  Ariel's Cantina will be open with a full menu from 11:30am - 2:30pm on Saturday and Sunday.
