On Sunday the festivities continue in Island Pond with the annual 4th of July cardboard boat race. On Saturday the rain held out long enough for the parade, and the duck regatta enthusiasts didn't seem to mind a light shower as the ducks followed the current under the Essex House to the finish line. Lots more pictures on display in the Newport Daily Express this week.
