First Night Wolfeboro 2011

Wolfeboro is the only First Night left in New Hampshire from the original three towns and city that had participated in First Night activities starting in 1999. On Friday, December 31st, First Night Wolfeboro will start at 5:15 with the Mardi Gras-style parade in downtown Wolfeboro, and will end at midnight with fireworks over Wolfeboro Bay on Lake Winnipesaukee.

First Night Wolfeboro 2011

As a lifelong lover of music and also as a resident of Tuftonboro, I have been to these First Night activities the past decade and I can attest to the wonderful quality of the performances presented. Because of my love of playing the guitar and mandolin, I am drawn to the exceptional music of my former string teacher, Seth Austen and his partner Beverly Woods. Their expertise in evoking sounds from a variety of musical styles range from Celtic, Appalachian, to Old Time Music is never to be missed. In the same venue as Austen and Woods, the First Congregational Church on North Main Street, is the amazing husband and wife team of Burke and Surette.  The first time I heard Susie Burkes voice and David Surettes playing of the guitar, mandolin and octave mandolin I was stunned at their musicality as a duo. Susies voice and Davids accompanying of songs which often speak to the heart or are playful and fun will, I believe, make them favorites of yours too. For only ten dollars for a button you get to visit all the performance venues, not only hearing amazing artists perform their music, but can see Wolfeboros Village Players perform, ice sculptures being made, face painting and mask making, an Olde Tyme Magik Show, marionettes, a Celtic Odyssey Contra Dance, and many many more wonderful activities.  Buttons can be purchased at the Wolfeboro Chamber of Commerce on Railroad Avenue or at all select site locations the evening of December 31st. Dont miss your chance to ring out the old year and ring in the new with an extraordinary event, and have a Happy New Year from Carol and me at Maxfield Real Estate! Just one more reason why living in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire is so special.
