Ashley Erling bring us “Eye on RI” highlighting local events and activities!
Open Air Saturdays- InDowncity is changing things up in 2020, hosting a more self-guided, socially distanced experience for you downtown on Saturdays! During the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Westminster Street will close to vehicle traffic between Eddy Street and Union Street so that you can take to the street for some socially distanced shopping and browsing. The program will continue each Saturday through the fall, allowing you the opportunity to support your favorite local businesses in a safe manner in the comfort of the fresh, open air. Open Air Saturdays will allow for safe shopping both in-store and outside on the sidewalks, but for those who cannot attend, the majority of participating shops also offer online shopping and shipping as well. Visitors to Open Air Saturdays are asked to wear face masks and practice social distancing while shopping. No-touch hand sanitizing stations will be provided along Westminster Street.
