We come back to this one year after year because it's one of the best events OF the entire year. The 23rd Annual Children and the Arts Festival takes place in downtown Peterborough this weekend.

The Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom brings the Boston-bred band Extreme to the stage. The late 80's/early 90's band is best known for their huge number one hit song, "More Than Words" and a handful of other chart-topping singles. And due to their unwavering songcraft and diverse musical approaches the band earned multi-platinum albums with chart topping hits and sold-out tours all over the globe.
