Corinth celebrates town's 250th anniversary with Fourth of July parade

Posted: Updated:
CORINTH, Vt. - July 4, 2014, may be America's 238th birthday, but the small town of Corinth, Vermont, is even older.

"We're celebrating our 250th anniversary of the town this year," said Russ Pazdro, a town selectman.

And celebrate they did. They paraded through the streets honoring both America and the town locals love.

"It's a wide mix of folks. You have everything here, which keeps it interesting," said Pazdro.

Some kids rode in style on four wheels.

"The mini sprints have a 500 XL FT motors on 'em," said Riley Chaffee, who rode in the parade.

But for Riley and many others in Corinth, July 4 is not the only time to feel the need for speed.

"Racing around the yard, poppin’ wheelies," said Riley.

One family even came all the way from Colorado to catch the quintessential Vermont celebration. The Schmauder family spends two weeks every year touring the Green Mountain State and Angelina Schmauder brought her own camera to capture the moments.

"I'm just here filming, just kind of having fun, filming for my YouTube," said Schmauder.

And the town left a great impression.

"I liked... I liked all of it really," said Schmauder.

The celebrations continued after the parade with music, food and friends even though 250 candles are hard to fit on a cake.
