If you're looking for a new way to kick off your patriotic celebrations, this is perfect! Just take your chairs or blanket to the Newport American Legion Post 105 on North Street for a picnic in the park.

There will be plenty to eat, with a chicken barbecue! For just $8 per person, you can enjoy barbecue chicken with all the fixings, including dessert, and a drink. And the entertainment will be provided by the 195th Army National Band. It sounds like a fun, delicious community celebration!

In case of rain, the event will be moved across the street, to the Newport Rec. Center. For more information, log onto the event page on Facebook.
