PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Gov. Dan McKee signed an order Wednesday establishing the 33rd Governor’s Bay Day.

On July 31, all parking at state beaches and RIPTA beach bus schedule’s will be free. People can go saltwater fishing without a license for the entire weekend.

Governor’s Bay Day encourages residents to engage in outdoor activity. Plus, the day also encourages families to go outside and explore the beaches in Rhode Island.

“Governor’s Bay Day is one of the summer’s best traditions and a chance for Rhode Islanders to get out and enjoy our beautiful state surf beaches at no cost,” said McKee. “I invite experienced anglers to consider taking a beginner out and helping them cast their first line in Narragansett Bay this weekend.”
