One of my favorite summer events is coming up! Hampton Seafood Festival is September 5-7th and this year is the 25th anniversary.
Every year there is food, shopping, fireworks, and fun on the beach at the Hampton Seafood Festival. As you walk down the boardwalk you have your pick of some of the best seafood in New Hampshire. I worked in the VIP tent last year- where you could enjoy beer or Barefoot Wine on decks over the beach. You can then walk to the end of the dock for live music and prizes.
It’s a great family event, too. There is face painting for kids and an arcade. In the morning there is a culinary display and as the sun goes down at 8:15 on Saturday and Sunday there is a spectacular fireworks show.
Last year I didn’t partake in the lobster-eating contest, but I did have one of the best lobster rolls I have ever had! This is definitely an event worth checking out.
As always, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to share your ideas of any New Hampshire related food/drink/venue/organization that you think should be featured in our “Eat Drink Play” blog posts.
