Here in Rhode Island, ask any local over a certain age and they’ll tell you about weekends at Rocky Point, or reminisce about their favorite horse on the carousel at Crescent Park and evenings at the dance hall. Others will tell you how their grandparents met during a company outing to Vanity Fair.
Throughout the evening, enjoy cocktails, “fair”-inspired fare and heavy hors d’oeuvre, arcade games, exhibits, films, silent auction, a photo booth, and more. Cocktail attire suggested.
5:30pm: Patron reception
6:30pm: General admission
7pm: Recognizing the Honorable Roger Begin for his lifelong contributions in helping Rhode Islanders learn about and celebrate their history and culture
Please stay tuned for additional programming updates!
Please note: A week prior to Spring Forward, on Thursday, May 3, we’ll host a panel of enthusiasts, collectors, local industry leaders, and historians of Rhode Island’s rich legacy of amusement parks, arcades, and resorts. FREE registration here!
