Pro-Trump boat rally, parade held in Narragansett Bay

East Bay

NEWPORT, R.I. (WPRI) — A flotilla of boats gathered under the Newport Pell Bridge on Sunday morning for a pro-Trump rally and parade.

Outfitted with Trump-Pence 2020 signs and flags, hundreds of motor boats assembled in the water before making their way north past Bristol’s Colt State Park. That’s where a crowd had gathered on the shoreline to cheer on the parade.

In a news release, organizers of the event said they planned the water rally because previous attempts to rally on the street were met with “hostility.”
