High Peaks Alliance at Kingfield Festival Days

On the weekend of July 14th – 17th, Kingfield celebrated its Bicentennial Year and the High Peaks Alliance was there to share the experience.

The road had been blocked off and made accessible to foot traffic only. Local businesses and non-profits sold sugary snacks and grilled meat. Visitors were walking and socializing all over the town.

We admit, we were not as popular as the booth that sold Root Beer Floats.The High Peaks Alliance sold raffle tickets, hats, and distributed brochures on membership and the Fly Rod Crosby Trail. Those who visited our booth had already walked the streets sampling the local fare. They came with full bellies, and questions about the High Peaks Alliance, the Fly Rod Crosby Trail, and other local outdoor recreation opportunities.

They were some of the most appealing snacks on the street that day and were being sold by a group of industrious local children, saving up for college.

We also earned the support of a number of union Soldiers who happened along our booth.
