8 p.m. (pre-show 6 p.m.). Welcome summer with the Chorus and the Pops Festival Orchestra. Also, featuring the Artillery Company of Newport, Fireworks by Grucci and The Bells of Christ Church. Free, no tickets required. Update: Adhering to Rhode Island's new guidelines on major outdoor events (released on March 18, 2021), the Chorus of Westerly's 40th Summer Pops, originally scheduled for June 19th, has been postponed until September. Subject to conditions being appropriate and final state approval, the event's rescheduled date is Saturday, September 11, 2021, with a rain date of Sunday, September 12, 2021. While the structure of the rescheduled Pops will be quite similar to a June-based edition, the performance will also include a special focus on the community's emergence from the Covid crisis. Additionally, the program will include appropriate recognition of the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
