The ‘Unofficial’ End of Summer

Many of us believe ‘Labor Day’ is the ‘unofficial end of summer!’ However, there is only one ‘true’ ending to the summer at Hampton Beach.  It’s the Hampton Beach Seafood Festival. 



If you are a fan of seafood, you probably already know about the festival.  Maybe you’re visiting our lovely state or even new to the area and you’ve never experienced the sites and sounds of this weekend-long event. It’s absolutely something you must experience!


Partly sunny with the chance of a late day thunderstorm and 90.  Maybe a morning shower in the North Country, otherwise partly sunny and 82.
