Scene in Manchester: Runners get ready to travel back in time
3rd of July fireworks
Friday is Fourth of July, but in Manchester we like to get the party started early. The city’s Independence Day Celebration will take place at Arms Park this Thursday beginning at 7:30 p.m. with entertainment provided by the 39th Army Band. The fireworks will begin around 9:30 p.m. NewHampshire.com has a full list of fireworks and other Independence Day celebrations happening around the state. Click on the “Fireworks” link at the upper left hand of the page.
I know, I know. It is not even July 4 and I am already talking back-to-school. But the summer does fly by, and preparations to collect school supplies for our neighbors in need have already begun.
If you are interested in volunteering at One Day of Community, or if you have a local business that would like to participate, please visit outreachatmcc.com.
Summer concerts are back in Veterans Park on Thursdays beginning July 10. The free, family-friendly shows are held every Thursday, from 7 to 9:30 p.m., through Aug. 7. Each night brings a different genre of music, as well as raffles, giveaways and other fun activities.
