Events, features and things to do for families in New Hampshire
What’s a Plaza Schtick? A comedy act at a fancy New York City hotel? Nope. A tree branch that fell in our courtyard last Snowtober? Wrong again. Plaza Schticks is a family entertainment series on the Nashua Public Library Plaza, held on four Tuesday evenings in July. So bring the family, a picnic, and a blanket and get ready to play, read, move, and laugh.
Play videogames in the Rolling Videogames trailer, with high-def TVs in stadium seating and vibration motors synched to the action. Sing along to ukulele music with the Studio 99 Ukestra, directed by Mike Loce; uncover secrets of nature at a Mad Science demo; and challenge your friends to old-fashioned games on the Library Plaza. (Videogame seating is limited; tickets will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis to children ages 6 to 17.) Sponsored by Granite State College.
