On Monday night, at the monthly I-195 Commission meeting, Building Bridges outlined their festival plans in front of a receptive audience.
The Providence Journal was there:
A small group of advocates who are frustrated by the delays for a pedestrian bridge and public parks on vacant, former highway land in the heart of the capital city have taken matters into their own hands.
They're creating a nonprofit called Building Bridges Providence that will host its first event May 28, to coincide with Brown University's graduation and a WaterFire. They hope to attract up to 1,500 people to their music and food festival, noon to 8 p.m., on the I-195 Redevelopment District Commission's land along the Providence River, the group's chairman, Olin Thompson, and president, Sharon Steele, told the commission at its Monday night meeting.
