There will be a FREE concert held in Lakeport Square on Sept. 21.

"Recycled Percussion has met all conditions required to hold an all-day concert and fireworks show."

Find the newspaper article online for more information.

Default To each his or her own.

Blues Festival at the Weirs the same day! Looks like I will be going back and forth between events. I have a slip at LLM!

Isn't Lakeport where the Mayor is moving his company and wants to create more parking spots for HIS Business? Hmm, Sounds fishy. Lakeport was never given a thought by the city until his business needed a new home.

You may be jumping to a conclusion that is not necessarily true. The group holding the concert to promote their new business is unrelated to the Mayor. The city set requirements for the promoter to ensure adequate controls were in place to maintain a safe event.

The fact that the Laconia Sun's home of many years was sold and the newspaper is renting in a building in Lakeport has no connection to this event.

Lakeport has been a concern of the city's and the most recent improvement approved by the city was the Lakeport Landing building purchase and renovation, which looks great.

Traffic is bad enough in Lakeport Square with all the road work being done (and I have heard into November.) Iím surprised this additional traffic nightmare was approved.

I am not. It is excellent for local businesses to promote the area just like the Pumpkin Festival and others. Events such as this, and Biketoberfest bring in revenue after the busy summer season ending.

They will essentially be routing traffic around in the exact same pattern it has been most of the summer with the road work going on down there.
