Celebrating over 50 years of the Gaspee Days Parade. Since 1965, the Gaspee Days Committee has continued to preserve, promote, and share Rhode Island’s revolutionary history with the community. Combining colonial groups from all over with our modern and vibrant community, this is truly a show not to miss! Each year, friends and neighbors crowd along a two-mile stretch of Narragansett Parkway anxiously awaiting the march of the parade. Be it the fife and drums corps, the fire trucks, or the Shriners in their miniature cars, everyone has a favorite to look forward to!
