VERGENNES — With a little help from Mother Nature, the 31st annual Vergennes Day drew a crowd on Saturday to the Little City and ran smoothly, according to city officials and its primary organizer, Marguerite Senecal of the Addison County Chamber of Commerce.

Because no tickets are sold, officials have no good way to measure the crowd, which typically numbers in the thousands.
