NH Tourism officials say 300-thousand visitors are expected to spend more that $115-million dollars over the three-day holiday weekend.

The foliage season is starting to peak in the north country, but there are plenty of other events and activities to keep the visitors busy.

Dover expects 60-thousand people for Apple Harvest Day on Saturday. Large crowds are also expected at the Warner Fall Foliage Festival, The NH Fall Festival at Strawberry Banke in Portsmouth, the Attitash Octoberfest and the Plainfield Pumpkin People event, among others.
