Fish Migration Community Parade

All are welcome to join in a community parade featuring drumming, dancing, crafts, music, and more. Rain or shine!
Led by the Narragansett Indian Tribe and the Hassanamisco Band of Nipmuc, this community event will bring diverse partners together to learn about and show their support for the need to create fish passage over the lower four dams in Rhode Island and bring back migratory fish such as the herring.
  • Screenprint a t-shirt as a take-home reminder of the Blackstone/Kittacuck. Bring your own t-shirt, or we’ll have some provided.
  • Color a paper fish and join the march to symbolically carry these paper herring over the lower two dams.
  • Join the Narragansett Indian Tribe, Hassanamisco Band of Nipmuc, and other tribes to learn about the migratory fish’s important history to tribal culture for millennia.
  • Learn why getting fish around the dams in Pawtucket and Central Falls is beneficial for community well-being, tourism, recreation, the economy, & more.
–> Please remember to bring your reusable water bottle! Water filling available.
–> In the event of inclement weather, this event will be held inside the Visitor Center across the street (175 Main St., Pawtucket, RI 02860).
