Ways To Celebrate the Fourth of July 2020

Rhode Island has a long history of showcasing its independent spirit. Even though large gatherings aren't possible right now, there is still fun to be had this Fourth of July. Bristol has rescheduled its Concert Series and some other fun events for the end of August, and there are still plans being worked out for other ways to celebrate the holiday throughout the state. 

We'll keep you updated as we receive more info. For now, check out some things to do below. And don't forget to grab a bite from one of the Providence area's acclaimed restaurants.
