Holiday Caroling

2 nights of Holiday cheer. Different location each night.

Spread warmth and merriment during one of the coldest times of the year. Join us as we joyfully carol through Providence’s West Side (December 19th) and East Side (December 22) neighborhoods. Last year Kidoinfo teamed up with Connect Providence, Leadership Rhode Island, Rhody Food Tours, and the West Broadway Neighborhood Association to encourage more families to take part in their annual West Side caroling event.

Chez Pascal Exterior Aug2010Kidoinfo is looking forward to partnering again this year, inviting families to carol through historic streets in Providence’s Armory District on Sunday, December 19th and starting a similar caroling event in the Summit Neighborhood on the East Side on Wednesday, December 22!
