31 Jul Celebrating the Blue Moon Tonight!
When a full moon appears twice in one calendar month, the second one is called a “blue moon.” It’s a rare occasion, and that’s why some things happen only “once in a blue moon.” Tonight is one of those rare occurrences, as a bright blue moon will be shining over the Lakes Region, and there are a couple of unique events happening to mark the occasion…
“Once in a Blue Moon” Mead Tasting at Hermit Woods Winery – Friday, July 31st – Hermit Woods will be celebrating the second full moon with a special tasting of meads. Vintner Ken Hardcastle has chosen a selection of his carefully crafted honey wines, including Three Honey Gold, Kiwi Melomel, Round Pond, Day Lily, Red Scare, Blue Mead, Spice Mead, and Crabapple Cyser. The $9 tasting of these meads includes a 19-ounce souvenir wine tasting glass. The fun begins at 6pm and will continue under the night sky until 10pm. Enjoy meads, live music with Paul Bourgelais, and summer moonlight at Hermit Woods! For more information, please visit www.hermitwoods.com or call 603-393-6971.
“Blue Moon Mystique” Aboard the M/S Mount Washington – Friday, July 31st – The second full moon in a month is extra bright on Lake Winnipesaukee! On the M/S Mount Washington, guests will enjoy the romance of the lake at night and dance to music from the good old days! Tickets for the cruise include the boat’s famous buffet dinner, and guests must be 21 or over unless accompanied by parent or legal guardian. The Blue Moon cruise runs from Weirs Beach 7–10pm, and from Meredith 7:30–10:30. For tickets or more information, please call 603-366-5531 or go to www.cruiseNH.com.
