Video: The Lake Champlain Bridge Grand Parade

Crowds turned out to celebrate the opening of the new Champlain Bridge over the weekend of May 19. The bridge opened to traffic in the late fall of 2011, two years after the old bridge was closed down due to safety concerns. The bridge reconnected a link between Vermont and New York 
The parade mimicked many elements the original opening parade in 1929, which was attended by then New York Governor Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
