Welcome to March!


Even though daffodils started poking up in February this year,  to many, one of the first signs of spring in Newport is the St. Patrick's Day Parade . The 56th Annual march will take to the streets on Saturday 3/17, (rain or shine) starting from City Hall at 11am. For a family-friendly (non-alcoholic) post-parade event, there is the 6th Annual St. Patrick's Day Family Celebration at the "Hut" on Golden Hill Street from 1pm-4pm featuring Newport Irish bagpipers, step dancers, giveaways, free admission and a "How Green Am I? contest,


Visit the Newport Irish Heritage Month calendar for other Celtic events in the City-by-the-Sea this month.


Happy St. Patrick's Day!
