Last Saturday, Friends of the Winooski River held their annual River Festival to celebrate the river and draw attantion to the crap people throw into it. The main activity was sculpture making using the objects that people had pulled out of the river during various clean-up projects.
In a community filled with people who compost and recycle like their lives depend upon it, who the hell are these people that are still chucking tires in rivers. Sweet Jesus.
Vermont Tire on River Street allows you to drop off old tires there. Certainly, a better option that rolling it into the river.
Knowing that Montpelier is the home to a lot of college students and that Shaw's grocery store is right next to the river, I'm surprised there aren't more shopping carts in the river.
