Stuck in Vermont: Holiday Lights at the St. Albans Cooperative Tractor Parade 

Episode 558

Dozens of tractors and trucks decorated with creative holiday light displays converged in St. Albans on a chilly Friday night for the 5th Annual St. Albans Cooperative Tractor Parade. We met up with people celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the St. Albans Co-op before the parade with hot chocolate and visits from Santa and The Grinch.

Eva hitched a ride with local dairy farmers, Junior and Joyce Gamache, on their hay trailer being pulled by a John Deere tractor that was driven by their grandson Cody. You may remember the Gamaches from an earlier "Stuck in Vermont" video which featured Junior's love of all things John Deere and Joyce's gang of rescued cats. Crowds of onlookers and families braved the cold to enjoy the festive parade, showing their support for the local farmers that make this state so great.

    Workers have begun dismantling the old coal-fired power plant on the Burlington waterfront which closed down in 1986. The long-awaited redevelopment is removing the outer brick layer of the building and retaining the interior steel framework, the centerpiece of a new city park on a waterfront that was once devoted to industry.
