Saturday, June 11, is the unofficial start of Summer on the Seacoast, with the 39th annual Market Square Day! On Friday night at 6, the Market Square Day Historic Walk starts in front of the North Church in Market Square. Then on Market Square Day itself, most of Downtown Portsmouth will be vehicle-free and pedestrian-friendly from 9am 'til 4pm, so plan to leave your car at the Inn and walk over the Bridge! This year, more than 150 artists, crafters, local businesses and food vendors will set up “shop” on Portsmouth’s streets. Two performance stages feature entertainment. The day 'kicks off' with the Market Square Day 10K Road Race at 9 a.m.
