Who doesn’t love the transition between hot summer days and frosty winter nights? Well maybe not everyone, but who doesn’t love a fall festival? In New Hampshire, we are so fortunate to have beautiful mountains, lakes, coastline and fabulous fall festivals.
In August, we were fortunate to collaborate with the City of Laconia in a Community Design Charrette. With the Orton Family Foundation, the City of Laconia, Re-Imagine Laconia and passionate citizens, the Plan NH team recommended possible adaptations to the Land-Use Chapter of their master plan. Some of our suggestions included integrating traffic calming techniques to Beacon Street downtown and connecting Weirs Community Park to Weirs Beach with a walkway. Now it’s up to the City to discover how our ideas and suggestions could help their needs.
During charrette, we also discovered their excitement for hosting New Hampshire’s 25th Annual Pumpkin Festival!
On Saturday Oct 24th head to Downtown Laconia to carve pumpkins, run a 5/10k on the WOW trail or help the City attempt a world record! Check out the schedule of festivities taking place between 10:00am-8:30pm.
Laconia has so much to offer with its incredible location, historic buildings, fabulous coffee shop and delicious burritos and much more. If you find yourself with nothing to do Oct 24th, head to Laconia, grab some hot cider and march in a costume parade!
At the very least, celebrate the season somewhere in this great state with family, friends and community.
Enjoy, be safe, have fun!
