The First Annual Harbor Lights Newport, will take place on September 20-21, 2019. Discover Newport is encouraging all marinas, docks and waterfront venues to decorate in a festive manner with lights and decor and they are also asking transient and seasonal boat owners to illuminate and decorate their boats in their slips (this is not a parade).
