One unique opportunity includes the first-ever Citywide Good Night Lights. Happening on Thursday night (8:30PM), festival participants can part-take in this Providence tradition while bringing PVDFest to the children at Hasbro Hospital. At the conclusion of the Citywide Bike Ride at Hot Club, festival goers will flash lights across the river. Regardless of location, people across the city are encouraged to also participate and record their act of kindness using the #1000ActsPVD throughout the festival weekend. Each participant will be counted towards this year’s 1000 Acts of Kindness initiative.
The 1000 Acts of Kindness program is also inspired by Mayor Elorza’s City of Kindness initiative, launched this past January.
