Northern, RI – The warm weather is finally here – hopefully to stay for the season – and with it come plenty of outdoor activities, patio dining, entertainment and more, every weekend here in northern Rhode Island.
If you’re looking for ways to spend your free time over the next four days, we’ve got you covered with our weekly roundup of all the fun you can have in a three-town radius.
This week, there are more than a few special events outdoors.
Wash away the winter salt at a charitable car wash Saturday to benefit Northern Rhode Island Italian American War Veterans, take a hike through a historic reservoir, or learn how to restore headstones at a free outdoor workshop in Pascoag. Celebrate the season and paint outdoors at a Spring Fling Vendor Fair, enjoy the crisp evening air at a Friday night cornhole tournament, or enjoy food and live music at the Kent Field Pavilion with Glocester’s third annual Touch-a-Truck event.
It’s all right here in our little corner of the state – and we hope you enjoy it.
