Video: Art Clifford remembers the 1929 Champlain Bridge opening

Crowds turned out to watch the Champlain Bridge Grand Parade on May 19, but for some in the crowd, this wasn’t the first time.
Art Clifford of Starksboro was just a boy in 1929, but he traveled over to Addison with his family to watch the festivities that opened up the first Champlain Bridge. He was one of the ’29ers who attended this year, and he sat down with Robinson Elementary School students to chat about what life was like back in 1929.
