Lots To Do This Weekend
There's no excuse for not having fun in New Hampshire this weekend.Let's start with the 47th Annual Stratham Fair which runs through Sunday. Saturday is WOKQ day with lots of great local country acts on stage Saturday and I'll be there with the Honda Barn Morning Waking Cruiser and a bunch of prizes.
We told you about it earlier this week, the 38th Annual Greek Festival at St. Nicholas Church in Portsmouth also runs through Sunday. There's a marketplace, music, dancing and oh so much food. We found out on the air earlier this week that over 10,000 pastries alone are prepared for this event.
We've been giving away tickets all week for it, and now it's here... The Night Of Fire at New England Dragway in Epping. Alcohol Funny Cars, a brand new "Queen of Diamonds" Jet Dragster, and more. Even if you're not a drag race aficionado, it's a great night of fun for the family. Yes, there will be fireworks and I always advise parents to bring or purchase ear protection for the little ones.
If you're the outdoorsy-type, the Mount Washington Observatory presents Seek The Peak this Saturday. It's an important fundraiser for the observatory's good works. If you aren't up for hiking up Mount Washington you can always take the Auto Road or the Cog Railway. I chose the Auto Road myself Thursday for the work I had to do on the summit. But I made sure to take time out to enjoy the observatory's brand new museum exhibit Extreme Mount Washington. Pay attention as you descent the stairs of the Sherman Adams Building. There's a giant video screen with some amazing Winter footage. When you see two bundled up people walking by one of the radio towers, one of them is our very own Chief Engineer Bob Perry.
These are just a few of the things that are happening this weekend, but our Meteorologist Gary Best says the weekend is mostly sunny with seasonable temps and not a drop of rain so get out and enjoy!
