It's shaping up to be a great weekend in Bristol and Warren — what are you planning to do?
We've got a list of destinations for weekend travel — including events in nearby towns.
Friday, Aug. 23:
Scenic Blithewold Mansion is the site for the Family Fun Friday, with the Toe Jam Puppet Band. The East Bay Chamber of Commerce brings the live performance and refreshments [thanks, Leo's Pizza]. You bring the blanket and other luncheon fare. Rain or shine.
For a much different vibe, head down to the Newport Yachting Center for the Brew and View, with the classic flick Jaws and almost a dozen local food trucks, plus Sam Adams to purchase. Bring blankets and chairs.
Another outdoor movie is planned for 3rd Beach Road in Middletown by newportFILM Outdoors. This week's film is The Short Game. $5 suggested donation.
Sunday, Aug. 25:
Celebrate Rhode Island's founder [did you know it's 350 years this year?] at Touro Synagogue in Newport with a performance of New and Dangerous Opinions of Roger Williams. The Aurea Ensemble provides a soundtrack to readings of Williams.
