MIDDLEBURY -- Something old and something new will be part of a celebration Saturday, July 12, in Middlebury. The second annual Trails of Middlebury Celebration will take place in Krider Gardens Park from 6 to 9 p.m.

The evening time of the celebration, the kayak course and the hospitality tent are new parts. A guided walk along the Learning Corridor on the greenway Linear Park is also part of the activities. Raffles of items from local merchants, children’s activities and fundraising for trail needs are items from last years celebration.

While the main celebration will take place in Krider Gardens Park, activities will also take place in other places around town. A casual kayak course will start at Riverbend Park and end at Krider Gardens.

Parking for the event will be in the garden, in the Middlebury Historical Museum and behind Chalet Party Shop. Funds raised from the event will be used to help pay for trail markings, trail mile markers and pocket maps of the trail.
