This Weekend: Berlin's Got Flames, Zombies, and Pumpkins (Oh My!)

Androscoggin Valley Chamber of Commerce

All around New Hampshire the leaves are glowing red, yellow and orange, but in Berlin on Saturday, October 15th, the Androscoggin River will be aflame.  Literally.

The annual RiverFire event, based at Heritage Park on Main Street, will bring a full day of activities to “the city that trees built.” 

The festival will include a Duck Race, hot air balloon rides, hay rides, a children’s Halloween costume parade, live music by Rebel Sons and the 4th Annual Zombie ATV Poker Run

Finally, at dusk, the pumpkins on the bridge will be lit, and the fires on the mid-river stone boom piers  will be ignited.  

So, pack up your car, get your ghoul on. This weekend, it's worth a trip to the Great North Woods.
