What could be more chic than black and white? A celebration of Vermont's cows in Brattleboro June 1 through 4, 2006, will kick off National Dairy Month (strollingoftheheifers.org). Live music and art galleries open late are the main events on Friday, but Saturday belongs to the bovines. Start your day at the Strolling of the Heifers Parade (about a hundred Holsteins, followed by human musicians, jugglers, and baton twirlers), then spend the day eating ice cream and cheese. The grand old Latchis Hotel (802-254-6300, latchis.com, from $75) is close to the action. - Patricia Harris and David Lyon
