Last January, as the holiday decorations were coming down from Main Streets across Vermont, officials in Randolph began shopping around for some new decorations. They decided it would also be a good time to upgrade to some new, greener technology.
For one night, during the darkest part of the year, light flows down Waterbury's Main Street. Hundreds of people carry handmade tissue paper lanterns to light up the night. This year's River of Light lantern parade happens this Saturday, Dec. 6, starting at 5 p.m.
"It’s like the Fourth of July. Only dark," commented communications volunteer Lisa Scagliotti.
