The Cog in Winter

Throughout the winter as conditions permit, the Mount Washington Cog Railway makes its way to Waumbek Station. Waumbek is located in an alpine meadow just below 4000’ and provides stunning views to the north and west. Passengers leave the train for about 25 minutes to enjoy complimentary hot refreshments, warming huts and a fire pit. Weekend and holiday week round trips to Waumbek are roughly 1 hour, at reduced fares.

Light Up the Night at RiverFire!

Just as the nights are getting colder in New England, the City of Berlin will be warming things up with one of the best fall festivals around—RiverFire! Come to “the city that trees built” to catch a full day of fun, ending with some dramatic fires on the river.

RiverFire burns bigger and brighter every year, and this year there are some fun new activities for everyone. The gates of the Service Credit Union Heritage Park (942 Main Street, Berlin, NH) will open to activities and vendors for visitors of ALL ages. Admission to the park is FREE.

RiverFire features fun, family-oriented activities such as:

  • Pumpkins on the bridge
  • Hay rides
  • Helicopter rides
  • The “Not So Scary” Halloween Party
  • A costume parade
  • Live Music
  • Mouth watering food
  • Spectacular fires on the water 

    At dusk, the Androscoggin River will be lit up with fires that appear to be floating on the water! The blazes will actually burn on the historic boom piers that dot the river. These piers were used during the height of the logging era, when they separated and guided the many trees that were sent down the river to the mills of Berlin. For RiverFire, these old piers will be stacked with skids, which when set aflame create a dynamic contrast of light over the dark waters. Take a walk along the bridge and admire the wonderful glowing carved pumpkins on the bridge.

    RiverFire is the hottest event of the season.  It is a spectacle you won’t want to miss!

The Colonial Theatre Presents: Rickie Lee Jones

Named as one of the 30 greatest women in rock, Rickie Lee Jones has been hard to classify ever since she came on the scene with the instant classic “Chuck E.’s in Love” in 1979. Jones began her career in the pop realm, but in her 15 albums, she has experimented fearlessly with her sound and persona. She’s performed straight jazz, blues, synth pop, new wave rock, pop covers, trip-hop, gospel, ambitious singer-songwriter music, and more, putting her unique spin on each style. Each new round of music-making activity by Rickie Lee Jones is different. Her live concerts have almost without exception been unforgettable experiences over her more than 30 years of performing. Her artistry is brilliantly underlined with her latest album KICKS which spans two decades (50s–70s) of pop, rock and jazz, presenting her unique and sophisticated interpretations of songs that were pivotal to her musical journey.

The Tillotson Center Presents: Guitarist Sofia Talvik in Concert

Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music that has been described as neo-folk.

Admission $10/Students $5.
