Day in the Life of a Lobsterman
Watch what it's like to haul lobster traps on Rhode Island Sound.
Hot Air Balloon Fest
Why: The barbecue competition, classic car show, live concerts and Saturday night fireworks are enough fun all on their own. But those in the know arrive at the fairgrounds as early as 6 a.m. to watch dozens of hot air balloons inflate and ascend into the bright July sky. Stick around late on Saturday to catch the magical balloon night glow.
Where: University of Rhode Island athletic fields, 3 Keaney Rd., Kingston.
