Lighting of the Bay
Join us in celebrating Newport Dune’s 32nd annual Lighting of the Bay. Stroll the bay and savor the sights and sounds of the holidays. From November 25 – January 1, the Back Bay will glow from sunset until 11:30 pm with festive floating holiday lights.
Bring your family or significant other and roast s’mores around the fire as you experience the bay aglow and immerse yourself in the holiday spirit. Firepits are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. All are welcome.
