Just ahead of the August issue of Rhode Island Monthly Magazine is one of the biggest parties of the year for Rhode Islanders. On Thursday, July 23 at 6:30 p.m., Providence Performing Arts Center will be hosting The Best of Rhode Island -a super-sized annual awards event.
Starting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, WPRI.com will have exclusive social media photos and video, and live at 7:30 – WPRI 12 will air and WPRI.com will live stream The Rhode Show Prime Time Special: RI Monthly’s Best of RI.
Organizers are expecting another sold out event to draw people from all over the state where last year, more than 300 awards were handed out that were voted on by the readers of Rhode Island Monthly magazine. WPRI 12 & The Rhode Show are proud to be partners in the event again this year and will be bringing coverage of all the action to those who can’t attend the show at PPAC.
