NEWPORT, R.I. (WPRI) -- Of all the pretty sights nature has to offer, it's possible the daily sunset is the most popular.
Starting tonight (Thursday), Fort Adams Trust will be hosting a monthly event celebrating this beautiful sight. Executive Director Richard Nagele joined The Rhode Show Thursday morning to discuss the idea.
"It's sort of like Key West comes to Newport," Nagele said. "That was the inspiration for us."
The local event will take place at Newport's Fort Adams on the third Thursday of every month throughout the rest of the summer. Beginning at 6 p.m. and running all the way until 10, the celebration will be full of local Rhode Island flair.
Newport Storm and Narragansett will be served for the beer-drinkers, and local musicians from the Rhode Island Songwriters Association will be performing throughout the night. Former Rhode Show Big Break finalist Billy Mitchell will even be making an appearance!
So for a good time with your family or friends, head to Newport tonight. Make sure you get there before 8:20 p.m., though; you don't want to miss the sunset.
