Hauling Yourself Through a Helluva Week
Summer weeks often contain lots to do, but this week is just plain redonculus.Let’s start with the weather. Our Rob Carolan says the humidity breaks Thursday and we’ve got sun all through the weekend.
So, going in order, it’s Race Weekend in New Hampshire. The free WOKQ Fanfest is Thursday night at The Magic mile. We’ll have prizes, the ever-popular Hauler Parade, a K & N Pro Series East autograph session and a free concert from New Hampshire’s own Jimmy Lehoux. You can be there with me Thursday night or join us on the radio Friday morning for all the highlights from the night. New Hampshire Motor Speedway is rocking all weekend long with racing action that culminates with the Camping World RV Sales 301 Race on Sunday.
Also Thursday night, join Karen Kiley at the beautiful Blue Ocean Music Hall on Salisbury Beach for “Helluva life” singer Frankie Ballard in concert. Our good friend Ayla Brown will be opening the show and there are still good seats available.
Friday night Karen and I are back together on stage for Travis Tritt at The Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom. Jimmy Lehoux will join us again as he opens for Travis. The great weekend weather has brought some huge crowds to the beach the past several weeks so get there early, enjoy all the fun of Ocean Boulevard and we’ll see you at the show.
That brings us to Saturday night and Jennifer Nettles in concert with The Indigo Girls and Brandy Clark on the “That Girl” tour on the big stage at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook. RJ Harding and his crew work hard each Winter to make the facility even better each season and he’s outdone himself this year. More covered seating, a bright new mid-way and more make it a “must-see” concert venue.
Which brings us back to Sunday. If you’re not heading to Loudon for the Cup Race, you can always watch it on TV. TNT has the coverage so check your local listings. Everything is aligning for one of the greatest weekends ever so plan for it now!
