Cooler in the Mountains concert series comes to a close

It was a gorgeous sunny Saturday for The Dirty Dozen Brass Band last weekend, and the show was really well attended. The Suzie Dundas, director of the EDT estimates a thousand people attended over the course of the concert. "There were people dancing the entire time, a pickup baseball game going behind the lodge, bikers and hikers hanging out…overall, it was a wonderful vibe and exactly the kind of 'mini-festival' atmosphere we're aiming to create," Dundas said.

This coming weekend, will be the last Cooler in The Mountains show of the 2012 series and Max Creek will take the stage. Whether described as bluegrass, Grateful-Dead inspired or audience-influenced, Max Creek is the traditional Americana jam-band, having spent over 40 years playing together, even inspiring covers of their original songs by Vermont's own Phish.

"It'll be the final chance for guests to enjoy free music, lawn games, giveaways, a cool Long Trail at the wonderful umbrella bars, and celebrate summer with Long Trail and the Town!" said Dundas. "It's also the final chance to enter to win a 2012-2013 season pass, so there's no reason not to join us!"

Dundas, who has watch The weather Channel very closely this summer, says the forecast is for a "sunny and pleasant" weekend.
