Happy Birthday Lake Champlain!
This year marks the 400th anniversary of French explorer Samuel de Champlain's daring expedition to our region and to the Lake that now bears his name (and from which we get our name here at LCC!). Known as the "Father of New France", Champlain was the first European to ever set foot in Vermont. And so to help commemorate 2009 as the quadricentennial, special events – celebrating the Lake, the land, and its people – have been planned all year long throughout the state. Right here in Burlington, the quad's International Waterfront Festival kicks off this Thursday, July 2nd and continues on thru the 14th – 13 total days of fun! From concerts on the Lake – Tony Bennett anyone? – to theater performances, food festivals, kid's events, and so much more, there is truly something for everyone to enjoy.
As sponsors of the Burlington International Waterfront Festival, you'll find LCC scooping our delicious small batch ice cream at the following events:
July 3rd – Independence Day Celebration Fireworks, Battery Park, 9:30pm
July 4th, 5th, 9th & 11th – Various Performance, Champlain Valley Stage, City Hall Park
July 6th – Dan Zanes & Friends Concert, Waterfront Stage, 3pm
July 8th – Steve Earle & Aimee Mann Concert, Waterfront Stage, 7pm
July 10th – Les Cowboys Fringants & Le Vent du Nord Concert, Waterfront Stage, 7:30pm
July 11th – Ween & Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, Waterfront Stage, 6:30pm
We hope to see you in Burlington!
