On July 30, Tiverton will be the place to be for family fun. The day begins at the Tiverton Celebrates Parade and will end with the National Night Out event, with a fun softball tournament in-between.

Tiverton Celebrates Parade

The Tiverton Celebrates Parade will be an acknowledgment of the town’s heritage and history, beginning at 10 a.m.

“Our town is pretty unique,” said Sgt. Sean Leduc. “At one point, it was a part of Massachusetts and then it got annexed to Rhode Island.”

That’s just one fun fact to accompany the 90-minute-long parade that will celebrate the town of Tiverton as it travels along Main Road, starting at China Gourmet and ending at Little Willow Daycare.

When the parade is over, the fun continues.

National Night Out Event

“The National Night Out event will be from 2 to 8 p.m. at the Tiverton Library and the Recreation Area on Route 177 to continue the celebrations,” Leduc said. Families will enjoy free burgers and hot dogs courtesy of Tiverton PD, bouncy houses, vendors, and other activities put on by the local schools.

During all the festivities, a softball tournament will occur, with eight teams competing for the No. 1 seed. The tournament winner will get all of the team’s entry fee money donated to the charity of their choice.

Leduc is excited about the Battle for the Bay, a high-stakes game between the Tiverton and Portsmouth police departments.

“I’m looking forward to the great support from the town,” said Leduc, and he hopes the town will cheer Tiverton PD on as they look to shut out Portsmouth on the field.
