It will be a nice weekend to spend some time outdoors in Portsmouth.

Meteorologist Chris Legro of the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, said on Friday afternoon that on Saturday temperatures will get up into the mid-70s.

There is a chance of rain around dinnertime, but other than that, there should not be much precipitation until Thursday, Legro said.

That means people who attend the 44th annual Market Square Day Festival and 10K Road Race will be dry and comfortable.

The road race is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. The festival will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Market Square Day was the first event produced by the nonprofit organization Pro Portsmouth. It is estimated that about 60,000 people typically attend the downtown event to enjoy the entertainment and purchase items from local crafters and merchants.

According to their website, the organization is dedicated to celebrating and sustaining the vitality of Portsmouth's arts, culture and history through events and community collaboration.

In addition to Market Square Day and the road race, Pro Portsmouth also organizes First Night every year.

On Sunday, it will be in the 70s and the air will be slightly drier, Legro said.

There is only a five percent chance of rain predicted, which means it will be another nice day to participate in outdoor activities.

The 13th annual Celebrate Pink 5K Run & Walk is being held on Sunday morning starting at 9 a.m. and it is a fun way to support My Breast Cancer Support, which provides financial and emotional support to breast cancer patients throughout the greater Seacoast area of New Hampshire and southern Maine.

The route takes participants over the Memorial Bridge. It starts and ends at Portsmouth Middle School on Parrott Avenue.

The cost to sign up is $30.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
