WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) – The City of Warwick revealed new banners Thursday that celebrate Gaspee Days 50th anniversary.

Every year, the community commemorates the burning of the hated British revenue schooner, HMS Gaspee, by Rhode Island patriots in 1772.

Events, including a parade, road race and an arts & crafts festival, will start next month.

Forty-two banners will be dispersed throughout Pawtuxet Village.

They’re full-color, all-weather, 18″x 36″ lamp post banners, funded through the city’s Department of Tourism, Culture, and Development through a competitive bid process.
