Newport set for 'fun time' with Pioneer Day on Sunday
It's Newport's turn for a summer celebration this weekend.
The city will celebrate Pioneer Day on Sunday, Aug. 11, with corn on the cob, a parade and a variety of activities for kids and adults.
The one-day festival will have its standard attractions along with a few new reasons to check out the celebration at Pioneer Park.
"It should be a fun time," said Renee Helm, the city's executive analyst who has helped to organize the event.
