Everything came together Thursday evening when hundreds and hundreds of people descended on Main Street for the “Taste of East Greenwich” stroll. The weather was perfect for strolling, restaurants were prepared for waves of eager tasters, and there was plenty of music to keep everyone entertained.
While some drivers may have been put out by the detour around Main Street, strollers enjoyed the wide open spaces allowed with cars eliminated from the equation.
The Main Street Strolls are sponsored by the East Greenwich Chamber of Commerce. Here are some pictures:
