In our continuing series on the 53rd Annual Wickford Art Festival, I would like to acknowledge and congratulate the numerous merchants and organizations who support this local event. In working with festival director, Judy Salvadore, the NK Blog along with its parent company, The I.C.E. Agency, has created a merchants map. In this map, you will see businesses who are located not only in Wickford and North Kingstown, but surrounding towns as well. You can scroll through the map and point your mouse (or finger on your mobile device) on a “hotspot” to find out more about a business. I have included address and website information as well. In addition, there is a gallery page with local municipal information – police, fire, town hall – should you need assistance prior or during the festival events. You can find this interactive map on my business directory page, (CLICK HERE) where you can also read about other local businesses in North Kingstown. Please frequent these local and RI businesses and thank you for your support.
