WARWICK, RI — It was supposed to rain, but by the time the Gaspee Days Parade started rolling just before 11 a.m. Saturday, the atmosphere was sunny and upbeat along Narragansett Parkway and Broad Street through Pawtuxet Village.
“Marching in the Gaspee Day Parade today was one of the best experiences of my life. It was great seeing everyone (especially the kids) gathered and enjoying themselves again. And I was very humbled by the reception that everyone gave me. I love you Warwick,” wrote Mayor Frank Picozzi on his Facebook Page.
Here are a few highlights from the first Gaspee Days Parade since the pandemic:
