  • Providence Children's Museum
    Serving the southern New England area for more than 30 years, the Providence Children's Museum allows parents and children to educationally interact with each other through two floors of hands-on exhibits and programs that help children discover art, culture, history, and science. In Bone Zone, tots can attempt to put together a life-sized skeleton puzzle, older siblings can examine the inside of a bone through a microscope, and parents are kindly fed answers to their kids' questions by the friendly staff. Downstairs, families can explore the science of fluid dynamics, building mazes and fountains that teach the fundamentals of water flow and pressure, while artists of tomorrow can go upstairs to Shape Space, where magnetic shapes and wooden blocks can be used to increase knowledge of spatial relationships by building three-dimensional models of Pat Boone's four-car garage.

  • Southern New England Golf Expo
    The fourth annual Southern New England Golf Expo brings club swingers one step closer to the ever-elusive hole-in-one with live demos, seminars, and booths from more than 50 brands, businesses, and vendors. Visit the 10-bay indoor driving rage to test-swing equipment from the likes of Callaway, Nike Golf, and Taylor Made, or glean tips from seasoned professionals during the "Tune Up With A Pro" seminar, which teaches golfers when to let go of their clubs as they sail into water hazards. Expo-goers can also enter to win myriad golf prizes, and all visitors will receive either a one-year subscription to Golf Digest or a six-month subscription to Golf World. The Southern New England Golf Expo donates its proceeds to the Boys & Girls Club of Providence, which was founded in 1868 to help fund character-building extracurricular programs for at-risk youth.

  • Rhode Island Rebellion Rugby
    Having already delivered a thrilling host of hits and collisions in its inaugural season of play, Rhode Island’s first semi-professional rugby team makes a push for playoff seeding with its last scheduled home game. Formed in January from the bitter core of Arctic permafrost, the Rhode Island Rebellion squad has quickly developed into a fearsome member of the eight-team USA Rugby League with its hard-hitting roster and unquenchable thirst for on-field dominance. Boasting four hard-earned points thus far in the season, the Rebellion seeks to establish itself as a perennial powerhouse with a strong conclusion to its opening campaign.

  • RI Haunted House
    The RI Haunted House within Dave & Buster's acquaints patrons with the vibrant world of the undead between action-packed arcade games. Brave voyagers cross the threshold into a ghastly shipyard where phantom pirates lurk around every corner, waiting for their chance to frighten unsuspecting dwellers or politely ask them for spare doubloons. Explorers can gather shaken wits afterward with competitive bouts of racing, dancing, or tax-return filing on one of Dave & Buster's many video games and ticketed redemption games. Be sure to check the hours before attending.

  • Providence Warwick Convention Visitors Center
    A skater-owned organization, Providence Roller Derby rewards wheeled shareholders and raucous spectators with fiercely competitive action, clever rink wear, and stamina-demanding athleticism. Pack into the Rhode Island Convention Center for 60 minutes of skate-clad action as the league's two traveling teams defend home hardwood against swift interlopers. Co-captains Hot Apply Cry and Hot Sauce lead the red-kerchiefed Riveters into tilts against the Dutchland Derby Rollers’ All-Star team and the raven-aided Poe's Punishers to settle simmering rivalries and arguments over the proper treatment for rink rash. Undefeated in 2010, the Killah Bees join the Riveters for a late-summer doubleheader against the forces of French Canada in a skate-aided intercontinental incident.
