Benefit in Epping
Highnote festival offers a fun family event for a good cause
The festival, held at the McPhee Farm, traditionally draws a crowd of about 500 people and has raised some $80,000 to benefit the Adam McPhee Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships to high school students and helps other community projects and programs benefiting people with disabilities.
The festival is filled with something for everyone, from tethered balloon rides and 10-minute helicopter rides to snowmobiles racing across water and a horseshoe tournament.
"Each year we try to do something a little different," said Adam's cousin Amy McPhee, who helps organize the festival.A play area was added where kids could bury their feet and hands under piles of corn.
"I really like the water cross," he said.
"You see your neighbors, and you see friends you know," she said.
