Run through beautiful Riverside and choose from a 5k or 10k distance and help us raise some funds for this historic piece of architecture. The 10k race includes sweeping views of the lighthouse.

The light was established in 1871. The 10k race will start at 8am at Larisa Park, with the 5k following at 8:30am. Bib pick up will also take place at Larisa Park starting at 6:30am.
Red Carpet Experience– Instead of making this a virtual event this year, the Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF) decided to be creative and celebrate the Oscars® in unique Rhode Island-style — at the Drive In. The Rustic Drive In, 1195 Eddie Dowling Highway, North Smithfield, Rhode Island to be exact. Working with the Rustic Tri-View Drive In, participants will enjoy an old fashioned chicken barbeque from grills brought in for the occasion. The boxed dinner includes barbequed chicken breast, Pasta salad, Cole Slaw and Corn bread). A Vegan/vegetarian option is available upon request.
