Maggie Gordon organized the event to encourage the town to develop the grassy lot behind the Hinesburg Community Police and Fire departments into a park. At least 200 people attended the event. “This was beyond what we’d hoped for. It’s so exciting,” she said. The 1.5- acre lot at the corner of Vermont 11 and Farmall Drive saw a lot of action with live music (local band Set Theory), a ride, kid’s activities, a taco truck, popcorn, lemonade and, oh, did we mention free ice cream sundaes?
