August is the month when towns all over New Hampshire hold their Old Home Day festivals, featuring fair food, games, entertainment, and kid-friendly events. Saturday was the big day for Pembroke, south of Concord.
Pat Fowler is a life-long resident. She chairs the Old Home Day Parade committee. “At the end of the day, when I’m sitting back and watching all the families, watching the fireworks and the music’s on Main Stage, you just get that good feeling of family and friendship and community," Fowler says. "I think that’s what keeps me coming back.”
