Springtime brings with it graduations, weddings, outdoor dining and everything we love over here at the PWCVB. We are very much looking forward to the summer, but are certainly not complaining about spring. It is, of course, one of the four best seasons in Rhode Island — if we do say so ourselves.

Read on to find out what's new at the PWCVB and with you, our partners.

Food Truck Events 2018

Our friends at McCoy Stadium are hosting NITRO Circus on May 25. This adrenaline-charged event features the best athletes in FMX, BMX, Skate, Scooter and more, including multiple X Games medalists. They will attempt record-breaking feats and spectacular stunts for an action-packed show that is fun for fans of all ages.

It’s FOOD TRUCK season! That’s right, at nearly every corner of this great little state you can find delicious food on four wheels. Check out our recent food truck blog here from our friends at FoodTrucksIn.com.

Congrats to Rhode Island Red Food Tours, which was recently featured in Yankee Magazine as one of five food tours to take in New England.

Looking to give back a little? The Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) is seeking auction donations for its two signature fundraising events — a golf tournament in June and a gala in November. Joe Andruzzi, former New England Patriot and his wife, Jennifer, started the JAF to offer financial assistance to cancer patients and their families in New England. JAF distributed $1.13 million in direct financial assistance last year, which impacted more than 4,000 people. To donate an item to the Joe Andruzzi Foundation's auction to help raise funds for cancer patients, contact Tracey Mahoney at tracey@joeandruzzifoundation.org.
