A parade is scheduled for this weekend to mark the city of Newport's 375th anniversary.

Neighborhood groups, civic organizations, churches, students, politicians, businesses and musical acts are all expected to take part in Saturday's event.

Newport was founded in 1639 and was the first capital of Rhode Island. The parade begins at 11 a.m. at One Mile Corner and proceeds south on Broadway to Washington Square.        

Parking restrictions along the route will be in effect and a section of Broadway will be closed to traffic during the parade. Police said to expect delays in the area and seek alternate routes.
