MIDDLEBURY — The Festival on-the-Green capped what organizers said was one of its finest seasons, attracting big crowds who took in 17 great acts amid picture-perfect weather for its 34th annual run on Middlebury’s village green.
“Everything fell so nicely into place this year,” said Festival Secretary Pat Boera, who has helped lead the weeklong entertainment ritual since its debut in 1978.
“I can’t believe how we lucked out with the weather.”
