SCAVENGER HUNTS • RAFFLE PRIZES • WORLD CLASS CUISINE & MUSIC
Eat, sip, shop, and be thankful on Thames!
Newport’s more than 80 participating shops, hotels, restaurants, services and public spaces are delighted to share this magical City-by-the-Sea with our visiting guests and local residents. Thames Street (along with Marlborough Street) was one of Newport's original two streets officially laid out in Newport in 1654 and providing access to the city's many wharfs.
The street takes its name from the River Thames in London, England, an area from which many of the early colonists migrated. It is more than 1.5 miles long and today is the heart of Newport‘s shopping and dining district for residents and visitors alike
Join us IRL or on Instagram Live (@thamesgiving_npt) on Nov. 30th at 7:45 pm for our Copper Pumpkin Passport scavenger hunt Prize Giving & Appreciation in Abundance Awards.
