PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza invites residents to celebrate July Fourth at India Point Park.

The city’s annual celebration begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The free event features family activities, a bike parade, entertainment, local food vendors and fireworks.

The Democratic mayor says it’s a highlight of the summer.

Children and adults are encouraged to bike to the park and participate in the second annual bike parade. It begins at 6 p.m. at City Hall and weaves through downtown. It travels along the shoreline and ends at the event stage.

Bicycles can be parked for free with a bike valet.

There will be road closures and restricted parking areas.

The city says the India Point Park Walking Bridge at East and Wickenden Streets is the best way to access the park.
