SHARE YOUR ADVENTURES!
As much as we might wish otherwise, we can't be at all places at all times. There simply isn't a duplication device capable of creating such an awesome feat (yet... ).
Share your adventures with @BusyBtown on Facebook or Instagram, or use the hashtag #BusyBtown! Let us know what super cool place or event you've stumbled into this weekend or share an upcoming event, and help us avoid a wicked case of FOMO. Wicked... it doesn't get much more Vermont than that, eh?
