Looking for something fun to do on the Seacoast 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. Sail Into Some Beach Fun: The annual Hampton Beach Catamaran Regatta is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
It'll be hard to miss all the championship-caliber, hobbyist and rookie sailors racing or floating up and down this coast this weekend. Grab a blanket, some sunscreen and a camera, and enjoy a fun-spirited competition and exhibition with dad this weekend at Hampton Beach.
2. Take In Some History: Is your father a history buff? If so, you could celebrate Father's Day on Saturday by joining in on the Hampton Historical Society's history walk, "A Town's Grave Past."
The program is a historical walk to two of Hampton’s cemeteries — Pine Grove Cemetery and High Street Cemetery — to learn about some of the doctors, merchants, revolutionaries and families that shaped the town of Hampton.
The walk, which includes lemonade and treats at the end, is $10 per person. Anyone interested in participating should meet at 10 a.m. Saturday in the parking lot on Academy Avenue across from Lane Memorial Library at 10 a.m.
3. Witness an Important Event in Local History: The historic Hobbs Farm, a scenic property with a 5,000-square-foot grand Victorian homestead, will go to auction at 11 a.m. Saturday.
The Hobbs family has owned the landmark, located at the intersection of Lafayette, Elm and Hobbs roads in North Hampton, since the 1700s, although an heir has decided to put the property up for auction.
Swing on by to try your luck at purchasing a piece of history, or head over to take in what could be the beginning of a new era at Hobbs Farm.
4. Get a Dose of Pomp and Circumstance: Wave farewell to the Winnacunnet High School Class of 2012 Friday night as graduating seniors receive their diplomas during the school's annual commencement ceremonies.
The ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. on the football field, although it will be moved inside the gymnasium if there is inclement weather.
5. Enjoy the End of Restaurant Week: The Experience Hampton Inc.-sponsored Hampton Area Restaurant Week comes to a close Saturday, which means you have one more night and two whole days to try the special lunch and dinner menus available at 13 restaurants in the Hampton area.
