WARWICK, RI — The Warwick Weekend’s usual summer fare is scheduled under threat of rain, thunder and lightning, but a combination of indoor venues and stalwart event organizers promise to wrest the best out of the next few days.

The weekend weather forecast predicts a rain-centric series of days, with rain at least a possibility throughout. We’ve checked where we’re able on rain dates and contingencies, but keep an eye on the sky and be prepared.

 Roger Williams Food Truck Fridays The Carousel campus at Roger Wiliams Park Zoo has a lot of open space and rolling hills shaded by trees, the perfect spot to grab dinner from a food truck and listen to music and entertainment during the park’s Food Truck Fridays event. If you miss this one, don’t worry. They’re going on every Friday till the fall.

Bring your own Improv This interactive improv show at the Warwick Center for the Arts welcomes voluntary audience participation!

Books & Brews @ Apponaug Brewing 4-6 p.m.(Rain date Saturday, July 29 – this rain date has not bee invoked as of Friday) The Friends of the Library are hosting a Books and Brews event to raise funds to support library programs and projects. The event will take place at the Apponaug Brewing Company in the outdoor bar/patio area.  The Friends will have a Book Sale to browse while you enjoy local brews, great food, and conversation!

Build a Bouquet at Roger Williams Park Join seasoned instructor Angela Rotondo of Bloom Back Flowers as she teaches step-by-step instructions for creating a stunning floral arrangement. Angela will share tips and tricks for designing a lovely flower display, and each guest leaves the class with a beautiful bouquet of hand-picked florals to take home.

This two-hour class is for ages 10 and up. Every $70 ticket includes: fresh flower blooms, a vase, professional instruction and access to any tools you may need. After the class, all participants enjoy unlimited day-of carousel rides.

We Be Jammin Food Truck Saturday Join us for a fun filled day at scenic Rocky Point Park! Stroll the beautiful grounds while shopping from local businesses, enjoy lunch at the food trucks, bring a chair and listen to the band and enjoy the sites and sounds of Narraganset Bay. Debbie Wood of We Be Jammin says the event is on. A pavilion and individual food trucks have their own tents in case of rain, which is mainly expected in the very early morning, she said. If that rain makes the field too squishy, they are prepared to move closer to the water.
