Livin’ in the Ocean State: 2011

Posted by David Logan on 07/21/2011 at 09:50 AM

Summer is bliss in Rhode Island.  The sailing is great (teams from Roger Williams, Brown, and URI won national championships) and Newport is a world-class vacation destination, recently featured in the New York Times.

On the horizon: the famous Newport Jazz Festival (headliners include Wynton Marsalis, Trombone Shorty, and Esperanza Spalding) and Folk Festival (headliners include traditionalists like Emmy Lou Harris and Earl Scruggs, plus quirkier choices like Gogol Bordello and the Decemberists). 

And, of course, there is the wacky Fourth of July Parade in Bristol (been having them for 200+ years!). 

Here are some fun pics from that uniquely small town RI event.
