Eight Great Things to Do This Weekend – 9/6/18

ONE: The Massachusetts Center for Native American Awareness’ 30th Annual Intertribal Pow-wow is a massive celebration of indigenous culture on and around Plug Pond in Haverhill on Saturday and Sunday. Boating, live performances, traditional cuisine, and arts and crafts are just a few of the things happening at this two-day event.

TWO: This Friday and Saturday, lobster lovers will be flocking to to the Hampton Beach Seafood Festival, now celebrating 29 years as the Granite State’s largest seaside festival. If top restaurants, vendors, live music, fireworks, an Elvis imitator and a lobster roll eating contest aren’t enough to entice you, I don’t know what will.

THREE: Our Neighbors’ Table’s Fill ‘Em Up Fest on the Newburyport waterfront returns this Saturday for its second year. Join the fun for food trucks, local craft beer, games and fun for the whole family. The event runs from noon to 5 p.m., and admission is $5 advance, $10 at the gate. Children 12 and under are free.

FOUR: Andover Day is a great time for people to learn about local organizations, businesses and civic groups. Check it out this Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. Live musical acts include Maddy Ryan, Bruce Marshall and Lizz Bills.

FIVE: This Saturday, head over to Middleton for their first ever Food Truck Festival. There will be food trucks, live music and kids entertainment all on 114 in Middleton. Entry is free. It’s all for a good cause — raising money for the Middleton Food Pantry.

SIX: Maybe you’re in the mood for a little twilight goat yoga? Saturday, check out Georgetown’s Great Rock Farm for a 6 p.m. class, sequenced for beginners to advanced yogis and yoginis. Make sure to bring your camera. You won’t want to finish your night without a post-workout selfie with your new goat friends.

SEVEN: If goat yoga is a little tame and you need something more visceral, the good people at unchARTed are hosting an evening of hardcore punk. Heavy headliners Raw Radar War have been around since 2002 and their thunderous sound might be just what the doctor ordered on a sweaty Saturday night in September.

EIGHT: The talented chefs of downtown Nashua prepare a six-course meal for you during Dinner on Main Street: A Harvest Celebration. Three-hundred guests will enjoy live music along with their meal on a closed off section of Main Street. Optional beer and wine pairings are available, and the menu includes one vegan and one vegetarian course.
