Champlain celebration slated in Crown Point

Included are elements of national heritage including music, crafts, food, dance, games, family activities, clothing, folk life, and customs.

The public festival is co-hosted by Chimney Point (Vt.) State Historic Site, Crown Point Reservation Campground and Crown Point State Historic Site.

"Chimney Point and Crown Point share a very long history of use as an east-west lake crossing, as a waypoint for north-south travel along the Champlain Valley, and as a landmark to Native American Indian tribes, to the people of New France, and to the people of the British Colonies before American independence," said Tom Hughes, director of the Crown Point site. "Today, a large number of people of Native American, French, Canadian and British extraction live within 100 miles of the Lake Champlain Bridge, the convenient link between Chimney Point and Crown Point."
