Friday, May 7, the skies cleared after a week of rain – just in time for the first Light River Junction First Friday event! Throughout downtown White River Junction, musicians busked, store windows were lit with projections, and people hung out, later gravitating to the parking lot behind the Hotel Coolidge where a giant inflatable screen held court. Mark your calendars for the next events in this series on June 4, July 2, and August 6! The series is funded by a grant from The Vermont Community Foundation (VCF), the Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD), and the Better Places partners obtained by a partnership centered on White River Indie Films (WRIF) and including the Town of Hartford, the Hartford Area Chamber of Commerce, Vital Communities, CATV (Community Access Television), the Briggs Opera House, the Center for Cartoon Studies, and local businesses and film and media artists.
