What do these 15 towns and cities have in common? Belmont, Bradford, Concord, Contoocook, Gilford, Gilsum, Goffstown, Harrisville, Hillsboro, Laconia, Loudon, Manchester, Northfield, Tilton and Weare. All these communities will be represented at the 10th Annual Holiday Bazaar at the Belknap Mill on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Dozens of N.H. crafters and local businesses will offer handcrafted home décor items, quality gift and food selections at this one-stop shopping experience.
