Providence, the capital city of economically struggling Rhode Island, is putting its woes aside for a night and celebrating its 375th birthday with fireworks, music and cake for more than 1,000 people.
The city honors its birthday Tuesday with a celebration at the Providence Performance Arts Center. It will feature a performance by Rhode Island-based band Deer Tick, whose new album is called “Divine Providence.”
“Of course we need a party,” said former Mayor Vincent “Buddy” Cianci, who will join Mayor Angel Taveras and three other former mayors for the culminating celebration.
