Join Kidoinfo: Caroling on the West Side of Providence!

[ 3 ] December 3, 2009 |

caroling-family-webKidoinfo is teaming up with Connect Providence, Leadership Rhode Island, Rhody Food Tours, and the West Broadway Neighborhood Association this season to have some family fun and spread some holiday cheer.

Bring the kids and join us as we joyfully carol through historic streets surrounded by beautiful Victorian architecture in Providence’s Armory District on Sunday, December 20, 2009. Everyone is welcome regardless of religious or non-religious beliefs. 2009 has been such a tough year for so many. Help us spread some end-of-the-year joy through song.

We’re pleased to carol in the snow and cold, but won’t venture out in rain. A rainy Sunday night will keep us indoors at Loie Fuller’s for drinks and songs around the fireplace. Either way, we’ll experience much fun and merrymaking.

The Details:

    From Mike Ritz:
    Thank you for supporting last night’s event. I had many adults who don’t have children express how much they loved having the families involved this year. I hope you’ll return next year (Sunday before Christmas).
