Intermittent rain showers on the first day of Market Days were not enough to deter visitors to the 45th annual downtown event. Afternoon thundershowers temporarily cleared the streets, but as soon skies cleared again, pedestrians (and a fleet of umbrellas) returned to Main Street.

“It’s too bad about the rain, but I’m amazed there are people out at all,” said vendor Anne Clark, assistant program director for Independent Services Network in Manchester, which works with adults who have developmental disabilities.

“I love the spirit of Market Days,” Clark said. “I personally like being able to share with the community and tell people our story. … I think the organizers, from my perspective, do an amazing job. It seems to work really well, smoothly.”

The forecast for Friday afternoon and Saturday calls for clearer skies.
