Rhode Island beaches free on Rhode Island's annual Governor's Bay Day


PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — A Rhode Island summer tradition kicks off this weekend.

The annual Governor's Bay Day celebration on Sunday means entrance to state beaches will be free.

Parking is also free at all state beaches, and residents may fish in state salt waters without a license.

The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority is waiving roundtrip fare on all service to South County beaches on Route 66.

Free activities will be offered at Colt State Park, Rocky Point State Park, Roger Wheeler State Beach and Scarborough State Beaches.

Gov. Gina Raimondo says the day is a chance for Rhode Islanders to enjoy the state's beaches and parks.

The governor's office says Rhode Island state beaches attract more than six million visitors each year.
