Dog Stroll takes place May 31 while Chalk a Block contest has moved to July.
East Greenwich, R.I. – The East Greenwich Chamber of Commerce has announced its Main Street Stroll schedule for 2018 and there are a couple of changes: Main Street is going to the dogs earlier this year, with the Dogs on Main stroll set for Thursday, May 31. Meanwhile, the annual Chalk a Block contest – traditionally on a Saturday in May – has moved to Thursday evening, July 26, paired with the Arts on Main stroll.
The Main Street Stroll series features businesses open late, live music and sidewalk vendors, creating a party-like atmosphere downtown.
Music on Main will take place on Thursday, June 21, coinciding with the summer solstice – the longest day of the year.
The Taste of Main stroll – when restaurants up and down Main Street offer samples – will be held on Thursday, Aug. 23.
The strolls start at 5 p.m.
