Providence Cop Dances While Directing Traffic
Rhode Island is a quirky little state and Christmas in Rhode Island is no different. The exquisitely decorated mansions in Newport.
A red nose on the big blue bug that sits atop a Providence exterminator’s building on I-95. And a traffic cop, doing disco and salsa moves in the middle of rush-hour traffic. Yes, you read that correctly.
Officer Tony Lepore is as much a holiday tradition as anything else in the state that issued the first jail sentence for speeding 108 years ago. Since 1984, he has entertained drivers, pedestrians and gawkers with dance moves in downtown Providence — all while directing traffic. Have you seen him?
