This is part of a series of Community Walking Tours of Rhode Island Barrios.
Join us as we celebrate people, places, and community life in three neighborhoods that are significant to Rhode Island’s Latino Community.
Marta V. Martínez of RILA and Joann Ayuso, resident of the West End of Providence will take you on a personal tour of this Latino neighborhood. You will get to see the diversity of the neighborhood as we visit a local Hmong Temple, an Asian Market, Central American and Dominican bodegas and learn about one of the largest and most active African-American congregations in the city. The tour will end with a dinner or lunch at a local Latino eatery.
Meet at Dexter Park (Training Ground) on Parade Street and Dexter, at least 15 minutes before listed starting time. Ample parking available around the park.
The tour runs 1.5 hours with time to eat at the end. Wear comfortable shoes and bring $$ to pay for your lunch.
Advance registration is strongly advised.
