Grand Point North Festival Ready To Kick Off This Weekend

In the mood for some great music and Ben & Jerry’s?  Who isn’t, right?  This weekend marks the annual Grand Point North Festival in Burlington, VT.  Right on Lake Champlain, at the waters edge with  a beautiful view of the Adirondacks, this festival paints a picturesque scene while offering some to today’s greatest music.
