Broadway Street Fair, Saturday, Oct. 7 Updates

Pumpkin Painting

Paint mini-pumpkins at Marlborough Park’s Downtown Designs. There will be a gallery opening with music and refreshments too.


Come watch or join in Bike Newport’s “Bike-Pie-Jousting” ongoing event near City Hall. They will also be registering bikes, to hopefully deter those nimble-fingered folks, and have a few bikes up for adoption, too.

Paint a Rock

More than 1,000 people have painted rocks so far that will be placed along the Newport waterfront. Stop by to say hi to the Friends of the Waterfront and paint a rock.

Bicycle Giveaway

Bring an unused pair of winter gloves, mittens or a hat and have a chance to win one of four bicycles. These items will be donated to local service agencies. Raffle tickets are good for a variety of other prizes. The raffle will begin at noon, with the drawing at 5 p.m. The drawing will be broadcast live on the Newport Police Department’s Facebook page. You do not have to be present to win. The bicycles have been donated by the Newport Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 8.


Free daffodil bulbs will be given away for fall planting from noon to 3 p.m. The package of bulbs has a retail value of more than $20. Anyone interested in assisting with the city fall plantings should email daffodillion@cox.net or visit daffodillion.com for further information.
