Northern, RI – Welcome to The Weekend, northern Rhode Island, our weekly roundup of all the special events and happenings locally over the next three days.
It’s Veteran’s Day, and in addition to all of the local ceremonies and acknowledgements that took place this morning, many northern Rhode Island businesses are honoring those who served with special offers over the next few days.
This weekend, unique shopping opportunities and music events dominate the lineup, from a popup event with the Burrillville Farmer’s Market Saturday, to a free concert honoring veterans at the Chepachet Meeting House on Sunday. From outdoor hikes and crafting workshops, to venues featuring live acts, the region, as always, offers.
We hope you enjoy it, and make time to check out some of these great local businesses and events.
