On behalf of Celebrate Laconia,
you are invited to partake in an anniversary celebration
of the Laconia Passenger Station on Saturday, August 19th, 2017
with an old-fashioned train-focused festival marking the
‘quasquicentennial’ of the Laconia Passenger Station.
The daylong celebration of the station’s birthday will take attendees back in time to when passenger trains
thrived in Laconia. The ceremony will take place in Veteran's Square followed by 50 minute train rides with performances by a barbershop quartet, The Lakes Region Chordsman, and a day full of festivities including:
musical entertainment, vendors, food, shopping, model trains and exhibits, a children's tent,
a pig roast by Laconia Local Eatery... and so much more!
Pat Kelly with Binnie Media will be onboard as the day's "Master Conductor."
Ceremony 11:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
New Horizons Band 11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Annie & the Orphans 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Tyler Road 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Rockin Daddios 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Historians will give a lecture on the station and the Laconia Streetcar Company at nearby
Laconia Public Library at 2:00 p.m. accompanied by a day long exhibit.
We hope that you will be able to join us in celebrating not only this architecturally significant landmark
of the City, but also in celebrating the growth of industry and culture that accompanied the trains
and individuals that passed through this station.
