Vermont is open for business and this week, their first ever (LGBT) Northern Decadence event takes place this Friday and Saturday, September 9 and 10.
The event is meant to “showcase Vermont’s beautiful scenery, delicious foods, and welcoming people,” according to the organizers, the Vermont Gay Travel Association. Highlights of the weekend include a boat cruise, a food festival, and a dance party. More details are available here: http://www.northerndecadence.com/schedule.html.
Vermonters are still recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Irene but Northern Decadence is open and eagerly awaits its guests. There’s no better way to support Vermont than through its tourism industry. If you would like to volunteer or donate to the relief efforts, Seven Days Newspaper has put together a great list.
