See Horses at the Beach

Beach Polo on Easton’s Beach is one of the nearly 30 events planned for this year’s Winter Festival, which will begin on Friday, Feb. 17, and run through Sunday, Feb. 26. Now in its 29th year, the festival, conceived as an antidote to the winter doldrums, offers everything, including live music, comedy, ice sculpting, and a polar bear swim. Great food and drink (served hot or cold, inside or out) is offered in venues from beaches to vineyards overlooking the Newport Bridge to the Sakonnet River in Portsmouth. The polo matches, presented by the Newport International Polo Series, will be held at Easton’s Beach on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 25-26, commencing at 1 p.m. There are plenty of activities for children, such as a Princess Party, to a Teddy Bear Tea, and Live Jazz for Kids.
