We went last year and it was a great opportunity for kids to play music and create some gear that they can bring to PRONK! so that they can be active participants at the festival (on Monday, October 13th).

And what is PRONK!? PRONK! held on Indigenous Peoples Day (aka “Columbus Day”) each October is an AWESOME free, family-friendly, all volunteer-run, outdoor music festival, featuring brass and drum-based street bands playing alongside local performance groups. For the past five years the festival has brought internationally performing bands to Providence  while highlighting local talent, neighborhood flavor and community accomplishments. This day-long celebration of music and community activism, in the spirit of the Boston-based HONK! , is held on Indigenous Peoples Day (aka “Columbus Day”) each October.
