Newport boat parade

Take a walk down the Newport, Rhode Island, waterfront at Bowen’s Wharf and you’ll find brick walkways, granite quays and historic 18th-century commercial wharf buildings. It’s a great place to shop, grab a bite to eat or enjoy some liquid cheer.

Last week, visitors to the waterfront were treated to the sight of an assortment of festively lighted sail and powerboats parading around Newport Harbor after dark.

Here's a video of last year's parade: 


More celebrations of the holiday season will take place throughout the winter months, including a tree lighting ceremony. You can find out more at bowenswharf.com.
