Last Minute Weekend Add-Ons!

Here's a handful more activities taking place this weekend:

A few more events in Portsmouth:

2009 NH Leisure Expo

Piscataqua Waterfront Festival

Celebrate the Portsmouth Harbor and Great Bay at the Piscataqua Waterfront Festival, a new free family event on Saturday, June 6 from 1 pm-4:45 pm. Visit the Gundalow, docked on the Ceres Street wharf, browse booths on Ceres Street, and see demonstrations of boat building and timber framing in the newly restored Warehouse at the Moffatt-Ladd House at 154 Market Street in Portsmouth. The festival is a joint project of the non-profit Gundalow Company and the Moffatt-Ladd House and Garden and has been made possible by Piscataqua Savings Bank. At 5:00pm, enjoy a free concert by Jeff Warner in the Moffatt-Ladd Warehouse. Jeff's program, "Songs of Old New Hampshire," is made possible by a grant from the NH Humanities Council.
Seacoast Local Festival hosted by Seacoast Buy Local. More information here.

AND, don't forget that the Portsmouth Farmer's Market takes place at the City Hall parking log from 8 am - 1 pm each Saturday. Portsmouth seems the place to be Saturday June 6th!

And still more events around the seacoast and beyond!

Country Life Festival
If you're looking for a road trip, the Country Life Festival will be taking place Saturday from 10 am - 4 pm in Enfield, NH on the Vermont border.
Celebrate living in harmony with the land! Sample the Upper Valley’s cheeses, honey, herbs, cider, maple syrup and more! Watch demonstrations of crafts; take a horse-drawn wagon ride! See locally bred animals and participate in special events scheduled throughout the day. Many booths and activities will be held in the Museum’s historic buildings, so this event will be held rain or shine. Take a break in the Great Stone Dwelling for lunch and musical performances. Walter Paine will read “Cousin John,” a favorite among all ages. The day will end with a “hoe down,” with bales of hay, contra dancing, chuck wagon supper, complimentary bandanas, and evening campfire and ghost stories!
Admission is $7.50. Members, children under age of six admitted free.

South Berwick Kid's Day
