We encourage all marinas, docks and waterfront venues to decorate in a festive manner with lights and decor. We're hoping for participation throughout the waterfront and will need your help and support to spread the word. Be creative, add a theme, have music at the marina – the options are endless. Discover Newport will present one grand prize to the best-decorated marina and waterfront venue!
We'd like your transient and seasonal boat owners at your marinas to participate as well, so we're asking you to help by sending out the attached flyer asking boat owners to illuminate and decorate their boats in their slips (this is not a parade). We will also be asking you to pick the three best-decorated boats in your marina/waterfront venue and Discover Newport will award those boats with prizes.
The success of this event is reliant on your participation. The more marinas and venues that catch the spirit and decorate, the stronger this event becomes. The drone photos from this event will make for excellent marketing tools for your business, the City of Newport and the State of Rhode Island.
Attached are flyers for the event - one for businesses and one for your customers. Please share them with your friends and your customers.
