Communities around New Hampshire's Franconia Notch are holding their 21st annual Celebration of Lupines.  Though the festival focuses on the spiky purple wildflowers that grow in abundance across the region, flowers are just part of the event, which takes place throughout the month of June.  This weekend incudes an open-air market in Sugar Hill. There will be more than 50 vendors and booth displays featuring local crafters, artisans, nonprofit groups and small businesses. Free concerts will be performed each afternoon, and there will be free workshops and seminars on various topics, including local history and photography.
