There was a big lineup of supporters for Derry After Dark 2020 recently. When tickets officially went on sale Nov. 10, long lines formed at Rockingham Brewing Company in Derry to snag some coveted tickets for the big event. Next year's Derry After Dark will once again gather breweries, wineries and food businesses from all over the region to put their products in the spotlight.
Those looking for some spiritual uplifting can look no further than St. Thomas Aquinas Church in Derry. The church recently sported a message on its exterior sign inviting people to come in to find faith, with a fun play on financial words. The message read: Faith is an investment that never loses interest.
It's beginning to look a lot like the holidays, with some previous holidays still tossed in for extra fun. Crews have installed the downtown Christmas tree in Derry, all ready to be lit on Nov. 30, and Broadway light poles also have the annual greenery and decor ready. Some residents in town are also kicking in the holiday season with festive lawn displays and inflatables ready to go, although some residents are holding on to fall and harvest time with corn stalks and pumpkins still on display.
