PROV­I­DENCE (AP) — Park­ing at all Rhode Is­land state beaches will be free for the an­nual Gov­er­nor's Bay Day. Gov. Gina Rai­mondo has de­clared to­day as the 29th Gov­er­nor's Bay Day.

In ad­di­tion to free park­ing at all state beaches, peo­ple are al­lowed to fish Rhode Is­land's salt­wa­ters with­out a li­cense. Round-trip fares on Rhode Is­land Pub­lic Tran­sit Author­ity buses to South County beaches are waived.

Janet Coit, di­rec­tor of the Rhode Is­land De­part­ment of En­vi­ron­men­tal Man­age­ment, calls Nar­ra­gansett Bay the lifeblood of Rhode Is­land. She says Bay Day pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to high­light progress in clean­ing up the bay and cel­e­brat­ing the vi­tal­ity of lo­cal wa­ters.
