Many in Orange County are celebrating democracy with the so-called "Father of the Constitution."
Montpelier held a Constitution Day celebration at James Madison's home. There were mansion tours and wine tastings along with a performance by the James Madison University marching band.
This was all in celebration of when the United States embraced democracy.
“This is the day when we really said to the world the United States is going to be different from every other country, it's not a hereditary monarchy,” says Sean O’Brien, executive vice president at Montpelier. “This is a country where we are going to elect our leaders and we are going to pick the best people to lead our country going forward.”
Kids could also take part in some colonial games and a fireworks show. Constitution day is marked on Sept. 17.
