UVM Maple Festival

UVM held it's Maple Festival on April 20, 2007 open to all UVM faculty, staff, and students. I believe it was also Earth Week and therefore, you see the coffee cups hanging from the tree branches (last two pictures). This is done to raise awareness for the amount of waste that goes into the landfill everyday.
On April 20th (4/20/xx) each year and at 4:20PM, some UVM students gather on the UVM Green to celebrate 420 which is a police code for marijuana. They gather, light up a joint, smoke it, and then disperse peacefully. It's quite low key and doesn't really generate much publicity.
