Rhode Islanders visit Beavertail State Park in Jamestown throughout the summer months for fishing, hiking and checking out the Beavertail Aquarium. This Wednesday, July 24, join the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management for a family fun Bioluminescence Night. The event will feature stargazing and an outdoor movie screening of the film, Surf’s Up. Plus, illuminated jellyfish and other ocean creatures from local waters will be on site.

“We invite families to get outdoors and enjoy a relaxing evening together at one of New England’s most scenic parks,” says DEM Director Janet Coit. “We are excited to welcome folks to enjoy nature at Beavertail State Park while appreciating the marvels of the skies and life in the seas as part the Bioluminescence Night.”

The event takes place from 5-9 p.m. and the movie will begin at dusk. It is also free and open to the public and leashed pets are welcome.
