    This year’s festival, held in Middlebury’s charming downtown area, featured shiny hot rod tractors, fun rock bands, family activities, fair food and more.

    MIDDLEBURY — If you pictured the Middlebury Summer Festival and thought of families mingling on a sunny, peaceful lawn with fair food, local sweet corn sold by the high school band and home-made crafts, you would be right. 

    If you pictured a fog machine lending a dramatic entrance to a fun, rowdy rock band founded by Northridge teachers that drew a crowd of teens to their feet to jump and shout happily along with their instructors, you also got it right.

    If you thought of custom-modified lawn tractors like a shiny diamond-plated steel or a hot rod with racing tires competing in a pulling contest with drivers of all ages, you hit the trifecta.

    The Middlebury Summer Festival seemed to have something for everyone with a surprising variety of activities packed into a the downtown area. The gorgeously warm, dry evening made it even better.

    The festival continues Saturday, Aug. 9, with even more variety — arm wrestling, Northridge show choirs, a parade at 1 p.m., a “Minute to Win it” game and bands in the evening. The festival is free, and plenty of buggy and car parking is available.
