Five Things to Do This Weekend
It's no April Fool's joke: there's plenty of fun stuff on tap.
Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Here are some ideas (and be sure to tell us about the things you did and show us the pictures you took by e-mailing Editor Kyle Stucker at Kyle.Stucker@Patch.com):
1. Have Some Free Easter Egg Fun: Hampton and North Hampton families have a chance Saturday to hunt for Easter eggs, as both communities are hosting "can't miss" holiday events.
There will be thousands of eggs hidden between the two communities, so be sure to bring a basket or bag if you plan on going. The Easter Bunny will also be present at both events, so be sure to bring a camera and share your pictures of the events with Kyle.Stucker@Patch.com!
2. Cast Your Vote: Both the North Hampton town deliberative session and the annual Hampton Beach Village District Precinct meeting are this weekend, meaning if you want your voices heard you should come out and cast your vote.
The beach meeting voting is from 1 to 7 p.m. Friday at Hampton Fire Department Station 1. Voters will decide the fate of the Precinct's proposed $500,699 budget, which is $9,249 higher than the current year, as well as a proposal to transfer land over to the town in order to begin the replacement of the Hampton Beach fire station.
3. Laugh for a Good Cause: Head on over to Ashworth Hotel by the Sea on Friday at 8 p.m. for the annual Friends of Winnacunnet comedy night.
The lineup for the show includes Sal Votano of the Boston Star and Comedy Connection fame, Steve Bjork of Comedy Central and Las Vegas fame, and Brad Mastrangelo of Comedy Central, Tonight Show and Atlantic City fame.
The show is $20 per person, and all proceeds will continue to support the foundation's mission of enhancing education at Winnacunnet High School.
Speaking of education, several local students will be competing in the Destination ImagiNation state finals at WHS on Saturday. Click here for more information.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show, to which tickets are still available, begins at 8 p.m.
5. Learn What's Happening at the Seashell Complex This Year: Want to ask questions about the business competition controversy, or just find out what's in store for the new multimillion dollar Hampton Beach facilities this season?
Head on over the Seashell Complex's Oceanfront Conference Room at 10 a.m. Saturday for a two-hour session with the New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation and the Hampton Beach Area Commission. Officials will review the 2012 operating plans for the state-owned beach properties, as well as field questions from the public.
