In our continuing series of promotional articles for the 53rd Annual Wickford Art Festival, the North Kingstown Blog along with its parent company, the I.C.E. Agency, is proud to present an interactive map of the festival. In this map, you can see the village of Wickford with landmarks such as popular retail stores, restaurants, and churches. In addition, the map has yellow squares to designate where the artists will be stationed for the weekend festival which starts July 11th. These squares are called “hotspots.” If you move your mouse (or finger on a mobile device) over one of these “hotspots,” a text box will open up. Inside this text box is:
- Information about the artist
- Website where you can find out more about the artist
- A sample of their work
- What booth number they are assigned to
- What medium their art falls under
You can also go to the drop down menu and choose a “hotspot” on the map to find an artist on either Brown St., West Main St., or one of the side streets in Wickford Village. This map can serve as a helpful guide as you plan your day at the festival or as a handy guide the day of the festival if you are using a mobile device. You can view this map on the right side of home page of the North Kingstown Blog. We hope this interactive map serves as a helpful guide and that you support the artists and businesses of Wickford for the 53rd Annual Wickford Art Festival.
The RIBBE is The Rhode Island Baseball Experience. It is promoting the game of baseball here in the great state of Rhode Island for the entire baseball world to see. The RIBBE is positive stories, photos, videos, and responsible social media posts. The RIBBE is an information resource for families looking for an AAU team or a summer camp or a great place to buy a first baseman’s mitt. The RIBBE is a network of coaches, tournament directors, parents, leagues, and baseball junkies whose passion of the game of baseball is unquestioned. I believe that providing expert analysis, information and directions to ballfields, and coaching advice from some of the top RI baseball minds will help promote the game of baseball here in RI to a whole new level.
