Mark your calendars for our Fourth Annual Dinghy Poker Run for Charity! Join us for a fun day on the water raising funds for a great cause. Participants will travel to various stops along the Seekonk and Providence River gathering playing cards in sealed envelopes. Upon return to the marina participants will present their cards. There will be a cash prize of 20% of event ticket sales for first place. ALL other proceeds from tickets, raffles and t shirt sales go directly to PARL.

Any type of dingy is allowed up to 13 feet long, there are no restrictions on power type or horsepower. (Please inquire if your dinghy does not meet these specifications and you are interested in joining.) This is not a race, the winning hand wins.

Untitled-1Providence Flea is a popular marketplace with vendors that include carefully selected, small- and micro-businesses with hand-picked, homemade, handcrafted and small batch wares. ​The Flea has hosted over 2,500 local vintage vendors and some of the area's most creative artists, artisans and makers, plus community non-profits, food trucks and carts, and live musicians.

The Providence Flea returns outdoors in the summer and early fall every Sunday, activating a small parcel of greenspace along the river along South Water Street in downtown Providence, RI.
