This weekend in Providence
Despite the best efforts of our mayor and the firefighters, Providence will still be bustling this weekend as the US Conference of Mayors descends on the city. Full hotel rooms, restaurant reservations, this is just what the city needs right now. I'm bummed Joe Biden won't be here :(
For all you mayors attending, and for everyone else who has cabin fever from this week of rain, come on down to the Providence Art Festival right in the heart of downtown. It's from 10:30 - 5:30 and will be full of handmade goodness, great gifts for Fathers Day, music, a beer garden and lots of sunshine. I promise, I'm in charge of bringing the sun, so it'll definitely be there.
Later that night, there will be a Waterfire, and the Ballroom dance floor will be up for Latin dancing. Loads of fun for our wee city. Come on out!
