"The fall is such a special time in Providence - everyone is savoring the last days of good weather, the students come back, and the theaters launch their seasons! We love celebrating the in-coming year of creativity with artists and audiences from across the city and state," says Community Engagement Coordinator Rebecca Noon. "This year's party is happening primarily outside on Adrian Hall Way, and we're inviting lots of different kinds of interactive artists to make it really lively, theatrical, and great for people of all ages. The Providence arts community is incredibly creative and inventive, and so I know it's going to be kind of outrageous and super fun."
