Laconia “NH Pumpkin Festival” 2016 — Did Manage To Set A Record Despite Rain.

Come on, you have to laugh.

Maybe somebody up there was not happy about the snub to poor Keene. {SMILE}

Yes, I was partial to it being in Keene too. A bit more classy. {SMILE}

2016 Laconia “NH Pumpkin Festival”, October 22, Pictures — In The Rain!

We were there around 1:30pm in a slight drizzle.
Left soon after when the rain started getting heavy.

The weather, i.e., rain, was a definite issue. We tried to get there in between the squalls.

It was NOWHERE AS CLOSE to being as big, dynamic and exciting as it was last year. Forget when it was in Keene. That is like trying to compare Watermelons with lemons!

Tower, which had been moved from its location last year, seemed shorter. I could be wrong.

Nowhere even close to being a Guinness Book record. {SMILE}.

But the rain definitely was a damper. 22mph winds expected in Laconia tonight. Take care. 

Pictures taken with my Nikon P900.
