Newport Celebration 2012

Independence Day in Newport combines solemnity with fun. The kickoff is a concert by the Salve Regina University Band. As in 1776, a large crowd congregates before the Colony House to hear the reading of the Declaration of Independence, followed by the grand finale, a 21-gun cannon salute to the Revolution.
