Goodnight Hampton Beach!
Blink's is usually the first business to open on the boardwalk - generally between March-April, because it's never too early for hot fresh fry doe!
At first we open only on weekends until the weather warms up enough to stay open throughout the week.
Goodnight Hampton Beach!
Goodnight Hampton Beach!
Remembering those who sacrificed ALL in service to this Nation.
This weekend we welcome the NH Towing Association who is celebrating their 50th Annual Hampton Beach Tow Rodeo and Trade Show this year. These trucks are arriving already, but they will be featuring some fun demonstrations, good food, raffles and vendors on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. If you are here for the weekend, you will most certainly be woken up on Sunday morning at 9 a.m., as these trucks put on their truck parade, honking their horns all the way!!
Happy Mother's Day everyone! Bring your mom by for a sweet treat! Mom's like Blinks Frydoe too! Just ask her.... 😉

Congratulations to Cameron Garriepy who is the winner of our Cover Photo Contest. This collage represents 12 years of her son enjoying Blinks on the beach with her family. She wrote: "Are we a little obsessed?" We think not. That's impossible!! :) Many thanks to all who entered the contest and we will be giving away a couple more t-shirts that are only normally available to employees. Please stay tuned for more opportunities to win. Here is Cameron's winning photo (collage).
Happy Halloween from your friends at Blinks FryDoe!! 🎃
FLASH CONTEST! We are doing a little contest to bring some sunshine back after a few rainy days! We have a couple of leftover t-shirts (the shirts worn by our staff during the summer) and we would like to give one away. The other will be given away at a later date.
Here's how you can win. Send us a photo or series of photos for us to post as our new cover photo. It should be horizontal, ideally, or able to be cropped for that spot, and it MUST include either location of Blink's taken in recent years, or a photo of a family member or members enjoying Blink's Frydoe.
The winner will receive either a size Medium v-neck t-shirt (women's) or a size Large crew neck (men's or women's) t-shirt. Winner's choice.
Contest ends Friday, October 29 at 6 p.m.
Let's have some fun with this!! :)
YES, we ARE open (H St. location only) TODAY ONLY until 5 p.m. as we wrap things up. This is the LAST day we will be open for the season. Come get your final FryDoe of 2021. :) If we don't see you today, we look forward to seeing you in the spring!
This is our last 'official' day that we are open (we are still at the C Street location until 8 p.m.) but if you feel like having one final FryDoe of the season, check in tomorrow; we will probably be there doing some final clean-up. If we do open, we will announce it here!
We would like to thank everyone who supported us this summer by enjoying some FryDoe when they were at the beach! We will have a special giveaway coming up in the days/weeks ahead. Again, thank you for visiting us this season and we will see you in the spring for sure. Remember, we are always the first to open in the spring! :)

Sebastian "Subby" Privitera was at it again, creating this message on the sand at Hampton Beach for today. Also, today at the Seashell Stage, there was a beautiful remembrance, "September 11th, 2001: A 20 Year Tribute." We will NEVER FORGET. Today, and every day, we will always remember, not only the events of 9/11 but the War that followed and all who were lost - civilian, first responders, and service members. May they all continue to Rest in Peace.

Presented to you by the Boston Circus Guild and the Hampton Beach Village District. Hosted by the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, Division of Parks and Recreation.
Fireworks will light up the sky tonight at approximately 9:30 p.m. The show goes off from the beach at the top of B & C Streets. This show is a rain date from Wednesday's cancelled show. Enjoy!!
