Downtown Laconia Hosting Coffee Fest September 14

LACONIA — The smell of roasting coffee is in the air . . . and how sweet it is after a challenging summer of extremes. Time to wind down and enjoy what is Mother Nature's loveliest show.

Dedicated members of the Main Street Initiative have put on their thinking caps and come up with a creative option for a relaxing afternoon of music and community cheer. Saturday, September 14, from 1-5 p.m. in Laconia's downtown center there will be multiple coffee-related vendors from throughout the state.

The Jonathan Lorentz Trio, a smooth jazz ensemble, will be the featured entertainer. Amusing contests for both adults and children will be on site. Admission is free.
Following WOW Trail's annual WOW Fest, which focuses on a multiple level of sports, it will be the perfect way to complete a day in the City on the Lakes.

Call John at the Main Street office, 455-2084, for added details.
