PORTSMOUTH, N.H. – As part of its sponsorship, Service Credit Union will give free tickets to active military personnel (including Guard and Reserve) for the 29th Annual Hampton Beach Seafood Festival. The festival will be held Friday to Sunday, September 7 to September 9 along Ocean Boulevard in Hampton Beach.
Free festival wristbands are available to anyone providing an active military ID or evidence of service at any New Hampshire Service Credit Union branches while supplies last.
“Service Credit Union is proud to have this opportunity to give back to those who defend our country,” said Wendy Beswick, Vice President of Marketing at SCU. “We are looking forward to sharing the experience of the festival with the members of the military community.”
SCU will have a booth at the festival for a selfie station, drawings, giveaways and special offers.
The festival features 60 of the Seacoast’s top restaurants offering their very best seafood dishes, continuous entertainment, end-of-season sidewalk sales, an arts and crafts tent, a beer tent, lobster-roll eating contest and spectacular fireworks display on the beach. It is the state’s largest seafood festival with expected attendance of more than 150,000.
“I am very excited and honored that Service Credit Union will be our presenting sponsor this year at the Chamber’s Annual Seafood Festival,” said John B. Nyhan, President of the Hampton Area Chamber of Commerce. “Their commitment in serving their communities along with the strong connection with our military makes them a perfect partner and one that we hope to have for years to come.”
For those not in the military, tickets are $5 on Friday, $10 on Saturday and $8 on Sunday. For those under 12 years of age, there is no charge for admission. For more information on the event, visit www.hamptonbeachseafoodfestival.com.
