"Park in the Street" event in Montpelier

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. - Local businesses in Montpelier are giving "park in the street" a whole new meaning.
Saturday on State Street 30 parking spaces were transformed into individual shops. Vendors set up everything from food to jewelry and clothes. This is the first year of the event. The city hopes it will attract more shoppers to the area and give community members a chance to get out.

Event Coordinator Meg Schultz explained, "This is a great opportunity to close the street, showcase the businesses and culture that's already here and bring a really vibrant event to downtown that really does advance the atmosphere."

The event lasted until 10pm Saturday night.
