Katie McQuaid's Scene in Manchester: Calling all area Muchachos
In addition to entertaining performances by drum and bugle corps from across the country and Canada, this year’s Fiesta de Musica at Memorial High School on Saturday, July 19, will feature food trucks from all over New England.
Fiesta de Musica is from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., with musical performances beginning at 5:30 p.m. Reserved tickets are $15. General admission is $12, and seniors, children under 12 and groups of 10 or more pay $10 per person. Food truck meals are extra. A link to purchase tickets can be found at www.muchachos.org.
While you are at Fiesta de Musica, be sure to check out the major facelift to the area in front of Memorial High School known as Bicentennial Park. Recent graduate Parker Ricker renovated the park and the area around the Crusaders sign as his Eagle Scout Project this spring. It looks great.
Sneakers and speakers
If you take a trip over to the Red Hook Brewery in Portsmouth this Saturday you can help do some good in Manchester.
Sneakers and Speakers starts at 2:30 p.m. and features music by Okkervil River, Kevin Devine and the Gd Band, The Whigs, Jason Anderson, and Hawk and Dove. There will also be lawn games, food vendors and other surprises. Tickets are $15 in advance or $25 at the door and you must be at least 21 to attend.
From Clam King to clambake
The former Clam King on Second Street officially opened over the weekend as Ipswich Clambake and Castaways’ Tavern. One of the owners, Mike Moran, said the menu will be slightly different from the first Ipswich Clambake in Ipswich, Mass. — adding items like steak, pasta and some gluten-free options to the seafood fare.
UNH Manchester’s Ultimate Frisbee Club is hosting a day-long Frisbee tournament at Rock Rimmon Field Sunday. The “Frisbee for Science” tournament, which raises money for the Manchester High School Central Science Department, is open to all players of all abilities and experience. At sign-up, players rate their skill level and are placed on teams accordingly.
