Yet another month has come and gone, and with it, comes one of my favorite months. Normally June is the start of summer weather, and the temps are cooler. Well Mother Nature threw us for a loop this year, Saturday was the 1st, and the temps got close to 90. A little too warm for me, but hey, I was just happy it wasn’t snowing!
This image was taken last year at the RockFire Event in Websterville, Vermont (click here to see my photos from last year.) This is near and dear to my heart, as my mother-in-law grew up here, and my Uncle Pierre is the event creator and coordinator. Last year’s efforts helped to raise over $100,000 to match the town’s contribution towards the Barre Town Forest Preservation Project. And I can only imagine this years will be that much better.
June 21-23, the Millstone Trails Association (MTA) is hosting their second-annual RockFire Festival. RockFire is a unique combination of art, music, and fire, set amongst Millstone Hill’s granite quarries and historic ruins. This year, the two mile procession, lit by more than a thousand luminaries amongst parts of the Barre Town Forest, will feature six stage areas and twelve different musicians. Daytime experiences include an artists walk, historic quarry wagon tours and free admission to the granite museum. The number of sculptors and artists participating has doubled this year, enhancing the daytime experience too. There is an artists walk planned, as well as historic quarry wagon tours and free admission to the granite museum.
Jaime and I will be volunteering at it this year, we hope to see you there! Please visit RockFire’s website, or find us on Facebook! You can also see my photographs from last year here.
Until next month, Happy June!
