Northern, RI – We don’t want to say it, but we feel compelled to warn you: summer is winding down.
You have just a few weeks left to squeeze the most out of the season, with many free outdoor events set to come to an end.
It is the final week to catch the Blount Clam Shack and enjoy seafood with your homemade scoop while visiting the cows at Wright’s Dairy Farm. There’s just two weeks left for the Riverwalk Concert Series in Harrisville, and three remaining for North Smithfield’s summer concert series.
So get out there and have some fun this weekend, northern Rhode Island. Check out all the best of what’s happening in our three-town radius below and don’t forget to tell them: NRI NOW sent you.
