Those hoping to escape the monotony of yet another Saturday should head to Nicholson-Hardie for its 4th-annual fall festival this Saturday. Nevermind that the high today is 87, it’s fall!
Quick schedule of events:
11 a.m. – 3 p.m.- Free face painting. (If you don’t bathe your child for two days, it doubles as a Halloween costume!)
11 a.m. – 2 p.m. – Pumpkin carving, including demonstrations by professional pumpkin carver Bill Bush, because apparently professional pumpkin carver is a profession.
11 a.m. – 4 p.m. – Chili cook-off. Bring your Crockpot full of goodness.
11 a.m. – 4 p.m. – Fall harvest bake-off. Winner takes home a $250 N-H gift card, and year’s worth of bragging rights over Linda Cashman, who didn’t even THINK to toast her pecans before putting them in her pumpkin bread. Amateur.
10 a.m. – 4 p.m. – Dog costume contest. Dress your dog like Mike Napoli and you’ll probably win.
