The second concert in our series presents PATRIOT BRASS, Thursday evening, July 18th. An old-fashioned band concert honoring the 10th Mt Division, Veterans, and celebrating Cranmore’s 75th begins at 7:00 PM.
The Patriot Brass Ensemble is the first and only professional brass group dedicated to serving Veterans and Military Families. In 2004 the group first performed in a community in New Jersey, after local resident and founder Steven Behnke was unhappy with the music at the town’s Memorial Day Ceremony. He spoke to the town and secured funding to construct a new ensemble, and the effect the music had far surpassed all expectations. “We had Veterans walking up to us telling us this was the best ceremony they had ever been to. That feeling was amazing”, says Steven. Little did he know, this would become his life’s work. The Patriot Brass has planned a good old-fashioned band concert featuring their 14-piece brass band with lots of favorites especially for this evening – a treat for the ears and feet!
Come in time for the early concert at 6 PM. Bring a picnic supper, spread your blanket or set up your lawn chairsand enjoy some of the valley’s local musicians enriching lives through music! A great evening of family fun and live, world-class entertainment at an affordable price. Come enjoy great music in nature’s wonderful outdoor setting at Cranmore Mountain – plenty of convenient parking, handicap accessible, and minutes from North Conway village.

They’re two, they’re four, they’re six, they’re eight,
Shunting trucks and hauling freight.
If you are the parent of a child under ten years of age, chances are you’re very familiar with the song lyric above. It is the theme song of the beloved television show Thomas and Friends, which has been captivating kids for so long that some of you parents may have been big fans of the show when you were little ones!
For a limited engagement this summer (July 12-14, July 19-21), Thomas himself will be appearing in North Conway at the famed Conway Scenic Railroad.
Here are all the amazing activities that are included with your ticket to ride (as stated on the Conway Scenic Railroad website):
- A ticket for Day Out With Thomas includes the train ride with Thomas the Tank Engine, as well as a variety of Thomas & Friends themed entertainment, including Storytelling and Video Viewing, plus live music, unlimited motorcar rides, bouncy houses, mini golf, engine tours, and an awesome Imagination Station that’s organized and staffed by the Mt. Washington Valley Children’s Museum. Here you will find Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway play tables, temporary tattoos, face painting, coloring and stamping stations, arts & crafts, and “Frodo, the Walking Tank,” a 70-pound tortoise who free-roams the area outside the tent! Guests will also have the opportunity to meet Sir Topham Hatt, the Controller of the Railway on the Island of Sodor, who is visiting North Conway for the event. The average length of stay for past guests has been 3.5 hours, so please plan accordingly.
One thing you all should know about Thomas — that is, if you don’t already know.
Among the ten-and-under crowd, this guy is a total rock star.
So you should open your summer calendar to July, put a big blue star on either July 13th or July 20th, and call us at (800) 332-6646 with your desired stay dates and ticket request.
Just remember, Thomas may be your child’s hero…
But you’ll be an even bigger hero for taking your child to meet him!
