SUN 30
Get Gored for Good: If you’ve ever imagined running with the bulls in Pamplona, this is the event for you!

Includes bouncy house obstacles, a 5K run, and eats and drinks at the finish line. Wear clothes the “bulls” can slap fake blood on! Downtown PVD,

Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame Induction & Concert featuring Phil Greene, Rizzz, the Wild Turkey Band and Hometown Rockers. Perfect way to follow up if you were being chased by Roller Derby Grrls earlier in the day. 3pm. the Met, 1005 Main St, Pawtucket.
