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.
