Calendar Looking Ahead Mark your calendars for these fun-filled events held across the country in June and July. BRATTLEBORO, VERMONT JUN 7 PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF CHICAGO IN-WATER BOAT SHOW (BOATS), PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF ADDISON KABOOM TOWN! (BOY IN BUBBLE), PHOTOGRAPHY BY JESSE BAKER (COW) MAKE WAVES At Chicago’s In-Water Boat Show, see the city in a whole new way. Strolling of the Heifers Weekend Moove over, Pamplona. Brattleboro, Vermont, is staking its claim as the bull-running capital of New England—as long as you’ll allow us to use the term running loosely. There are real benefits to choosing Brattleboro’s event over its Spanish cousin. For one, there’s little personal risk in watching the heifer contingent—up to 100 strong—amble through this laidback Vermont town. Once they’ve passed, their farm friends follow: You’ll see horses, mules, oxen, goats, pigs, llamas, and alpacas making their way down the parade route alongside decorated tractors, loopy clowns, elaborate floats, and marching bands. The weekend is about more than the novelty of watching livestock march down Main Street, though. The real purpose of this gathering is to celebrate farmers and local foods. In that spirit, stick around after the parade for the Slow Living Expo, where you’ll see firsthand that a leisurely life is a gratifying one.
