The Concord Monitor is launching its Environmental Reporting Lab, a long-term effort to better inform the community about the New Hampshire environment. To launch phase 1 of this effort, we need your help. The money raised will go toward hiring a full-time environmental reporter.

The Multicultural Festival will return Saturday to cap off the last day of Market Days.

Activities will be held from 2 to 6:30 p.m. outside the State House.

New this year will be an International Flag Parade at 1:45 p.m. with bagpipe-led procession up Main Street from Pleasant Street to the State House.

There will be more than 20 food and craft vendors representing dozens of cultural backgrounds of people now living in Concord. There will be music and dancing by local artists, too.

The Concord Multicultural Festival celebrates the many different cultures and dozens of countries that make up the cultural heritage of the greater Concord community. Presenters celebrate their cultures through music, dance, food, crafts, storytelling and other interactive and engaging exhibits, activities and experiences.
