Meredith Village is going to be hopping this weekend, as preparations for the much anticipated summer holiday get under way under blue skies and warm sunshine. With fun events and activities lined up for Monday the 4th of July, Independence Day on Lake Winnipesaukee promises to be a fantastic celebration for folks of all ages.
The Meredith Lions Club is planning its annual Rubber Duck Race to take place on Monday afternoon. This spectacle is the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and benefits many local charities. At 4:30pm, over 4,000 yellow duckies will tumble down the waterfall at the Mill Falls Marketplace and float to the finish line just past the footbridge in Hesky Park. Tickets for cash prizes will be on sale until 3:30 that day, and the grand-prize winner will take home $1000. The duck race is quite an amazing sight—don’t miss it!
Hesky Park on the lakeshore will be the place to be in the evening. That’s where Occasional Brass & Strings will perform for a patriotic audience beginning at 7:00pm. Then, at 9:30, everyone will be looking up as the 4th of July fireworks begin to light up the night over Meredith Bay and the sounds of the celebration ring across the lake.
Bring your family and friends to Meredith this weekend to enjoy a quintessential New England 4th of July holiday on beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee!

Ahhh… Summertime at last! The heat has arrived, and with it, the chance to relax outside in the evening and enjoy fun, traditional New England fare along with the fresh air. The quintessential summer celebration, Independence Day, is around the corner, and what could be better than watching the fireworks over Lake Winnipesaukee from a comfy spot at an old-fashioned clambake? Camp’s patio at Chase House will be the place to be on the Fourth of July!
Dig in to a feast of lobster, steamers, and chowder at Camp’s All-American Clambake on Sunday, July 4th starting at 6:30pm. Then at dusk, sit back and enjoy the beautiful fireworks display over Meredith and Center Harbor Bay. To keep the living easy, one price covers everything – just $64 per adult and $32 per child under age 12 includes tax, gratuity, and a great view of the show! This popular event sells out quickly, so call 800-622-6455 to reserve your spot.
Come into town early for the 19th annual Meredith Lions Club Rubber Duckie Race. This spectacle is the organizations biggest fundraiser of the year, and benefits David’s House at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, as well as many other projects in the community. At 4:00pm on July 4th, over 3,500 yellow duckies will tumble down the cascade at Mill Falls and float to the finish line just past the footbridge in Hesky Park. Tickets for cash prizes are $5 each or five for $20, and will be on sale until 3:30 of race day. Last year’s event had quite the turnout, with nearly 4000 rubber duckies racing to Meredith Bay! For more information, contact the Lions Club at at 279-6016.
We hope to see you in Meredith Village on the Fourth!

Get ready for a very special New Year’s holiday on the lake—The Inns and Spa at Mill Falls will be turning 25 this coming year, and they are throwing a big party to celebrate! The resort is hosting a New Year’s Silver Celebration Gala in the Winnipesaukee Ballroom at Church Landing, which promises to be spectacular!
The lucky guests will arrive to a champagne and strawberries reception in the lobby and a chance to mingle amid the sound of live piano music in the Oval Room. The party continues in the Ballroom, where a beautiful gourmet dinner will be served. Five plated courses, from Hors D’Oeuvres to decadent dessert, will be prepared by the Lakehouse Grille and accompanied by a champagne toast. Dancing into the wee hours is expected, with energetic live music performed by Center Stage.
Outside, folks will be able to enjoy the festive holiday lights adorning Meredith while taking a Horse & Buggy ride around the village. And at 10:30, everyone in town will be watching the breathtaking fireworks display over Meredith Bay!
The Ballroom Gala has already sold out, but you may still be able to find a table at Lakehouse Grille, where one can luxuriate in a fine, candlelight dinner with a view of Lake Winnipesaukee. The restaurant does not take reservations, but will put your name on the list with call-ahead seating that night, so plan to arrive early and relax with a beverage by the fireplace before dinner.
Congratulations to The Mill Falls Resort, and Happy New Year to all!
