Providence’s loudest free family-friendly anti-colonial music festival celebrates its tenth edition this year, with marching bands coming into town from Austin and Seattle and even Rio. Providence is represented by the Black Out Drum Squad, Big Nazo, the Kickin Brass Band, three high school groups from TAPA, and of course both What Cheer? Brigade and the Extraordinary Rendition Band. This time the festival starts on the Providence River, with four staging areas between the Wild Colonial and Point Street. (Where the Providence Flea happens, basically.) Then at 5pm the parade will take people over to the Hot Club/hurricane barrier area, where the celebrations continue until 10pm.
