BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - It’s that time of year again in southern Vermont - time for the Strolling of the Heifers parade and weekend.

The annual event celebrates family farms, local food and rural life.

Saturday morning marchers will parade heifers - young female cows that have not yet borne a calf - through Brattleboro.

The parade will be followed by a so-called Slow Living Expo on the Brattleboro Common and Brattleboro Retreat grounds featuring local food producers, craftspeople, a forestry exhibit, musical talent, goat Olympics and a foosball tournament.

Sunday includes dirt road cycling rides of 15, 30 or 60 miles called the Tour de Heifer and guided tours at five area farms. Reservations are encouraged for the farm tours.
