Thursday, August 15 Published weekly since August 2017
Another busy week ahead, with Saturday alone bringing a big Star Wars Fan Fest at Cheney Library and another K-9 Kerplunk Doggie Dunk at Globe Hollow and, over at Northwest Park, the start of the ninth annual Jon Scribner Memorial Baseball Tournament. We have the backstory from that event (and lots more) right below. And if you want to subscribe to OneManchester just click here.

Next Weekend's Highlights
(Friday through Sunday, August 23-25)
Dog Day of Summer: The event at Globe Hollow is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and all licensed, well-behaved dogs and their owners are welcome to attend -- but swimming is for dogs only. There is a $5 admission fee per dog (maximum of 2 dogs per handler) and it all benefits the Manchester Youth Commission.
