Third Night of Festivities to feature Music and Lights

Aug 16, 2018 No Comments by

When local band Manchuka takes the stage, dancing is a must! Adults and children alike will be up on their feet, bopping to the music in the middle of town. Then the crowd will fall silent and mouths will open in awe as the Town puts on their once-a-year, give-it-all-you-got, go-for-the-gold fireworks.

Please note, the location of the fireworks has changed this year. The concert will still take place the Londonderry High School, and the band will be located at the front of the high school. However, viewing for the fireworks will be best on the dirt parking lot and lacrosse field to the right of the high school. When the band is done playing, viewers are welcome to move their chairs to the parking lot and field for better viewing.

This year’s Friday night concert and fireworks is a tradition that’s been part of Londonderry’s Old Home Day for 16 years. The eight-piece band in comprised of a five-piece horn section, a full rhythm section, and several lead singers. The seasoned musicians provide light jazz, big band swing, and high energy dance music from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.

Shortly after the band stops playing, pops and sizzles will begin. Londonderry’s fireworks show, the one and only display given by the Town during the year, is sure to light up the sky. Just above the high school roof, the cascade of colors and thunderous explosions will be seen and felt. Children will crawl into their parents’ laps or sit side by side with friends, and their world will stop as they marvel at the lights and sounds.

Be sure to bring the family to the Londonderry High School tomorrow night, August 17, 2018! The concert begins at 7:15 PM and the fireworks right after at 8:45 PM. And arrive early, the best seats go fast!
