Giant hay sculptures on display through Columbus Day
KILLINGTON - Visitors to Killington this fall are in for a
surprise - amid the mountain vistas and fall foliage, they may find
themselves face-to-face with a 25-foot bear or 30-foot moose! Good
thing the creatures are made of hay!
A Vermont Chamber of Commerce Top Ten Fall Event, the Killington
Hay Festival is a celebration of the Vermont harvest. It features
25+ giant sculptures crafted out of hay, plus a robust schedule of
special events including the Motorcycle Rally, Restaurant Week,
Killington Resort's Brewfest Weekend and the Spartan Beast
"The Hay Festival has become an annual fall tradition in New
England, appealing to families from across the state and country,"
says Amy Morrison, Town of Killington Events & Marketing
Coordinator. Guests to the area will love the family-friendly
scavenger hunt and photo opportunities surrounding the giant animal
sculptures, and folk art fans will enjoy seeing the creative - and
sometimes unbelievable - creatures made from homegrown Vermont
Highlights of the 2013 Killington Hay Festival include:
A scavenger hunt through the winding roads and across the
mountains of Killington to find 25+ giant hay sculptures including
a turtle, gorilla and a Killington snow monster
Killington Restaurant Week with $42.41 (for 2 people) fixed-price
dinner menus at more than 10 participating restaurants throughout
The Killington Classic Motorcycle Touring Rally with five days of
touring and social events, an outdoor concert, BBQ & vendor

the terrain of Killington Mountain spanning the weekend of Sept.
