This past weekend Concord kicked-off its first ever Weekend on the Water festival at Kiwanis Riverfront Park, right along the Merrimack River.
But the surprising thing about the festival is the way it came together.
In the past, the Concord Crew team has taken a weekend around this time of summer to hold a low-stakes regatta with other high school teams. So how did it turn into a two-day event with a craft beer festival, live music, and touristy duck boat rides? Concord Rotary Club President Chuck Willing says this year, the right people just found each other.
