PORTSMOUTH — If you've been looking forward to hearing about what artsy festivals will be coming to Portsmouth's Prescott Park this summer, the City has just approved the park's schedule for the 2016 season.
The festivals are scheduled to officially kick off on June 22 starting with a concert, and will end on Sept. 9, ending with a concert.
According to seacoastonline.com, festival officials are still working to finalize the schedule before the season starts. Dana Levenson, who serves on the trustees board which oversees the park, told the paper that compared to the number of events held at the park last year, this year "they're almost exactly the same."
Every Saturday there will be a performance of the play "The Little Mermaid," among one or two more events scheduled to take place on the same day as well.
According to the paper, some residents and neighbors of the park are concerned with the volume of events that the park will be experiencing, where the same concern was shared in past years. Due to potential noise and crowding issues for neighboring residents, the festival's board has agreed to not host any events on school nights. Despite a few neighbors who are in opposition to the events, Jameson S. French, the chairman of the festival’s board of directors told the paper that "everybody seems happy" with this year’s schedules.
