PRONK! (unknown photographer)

The ninth annual iteration of Providence’s noisiest parade kicks off in Burnside Park at 3pm. Bands from Chicago, Austin, and Paris will join the Providence/Boston contingencies for the 5:30(ish) march down South Water Street to the Hot Club/Hurricane Barrier, where the bands will keep playing into the evening. PRONK!’s brassy organizers are quick to remind people that their annual march IS NOT a Columbus Day parade and is, in fact, “a celebration of resistance to consumerism, colonialism, hatred, and injustice.” More specifically, this year’s event aims to draw attention to the Community Safety Act, which would ban racial profiling in the city.
