Weekend Primer: PVD Block Party!

Just in time for the festive weather, there’ll be a mini music festival right here in Providence with the recently organized but  somehow already huge Sycamore Street Block Party tomorrow. A neighborhood event has grown into the first real happening of the summer, pulling in talent from all over the state for an awesome lineup of entertainment, food and general festivities. Watch out Newport! With this and Wooly Fair coming up July 31, Providence is mounting a serious festival offensive – and all much easier on the wallet than any of the City By The Sea events. And let’s not even talk about the July 4 goings on at India Point Park and Thursday concerts at John Brown House and Friday Waterplace jams… gee what a swell place to live.

Here’s the Facebook post that went out today:
