Find your fancy hat and join the Junior League of Rhode Island for an old-fashioned Kentucky Derby party Saturday. During the league’s Mint Julep Jubilee, to be held at a private residence in Newport, guests can try the barbecue pulled pork, ribs and brisket, or sample chicken and waffles, clam cake bites and chowder shooters. There will be a hat contest, plus lawn games, including bowling, horseshoes, croquet and sack races. In addition, the race will be aired. Dress is picnic friendly and guests should bring their own chairs or picnic blankets.
Saturday, May 4
Residence of Jane and John Moore, 190 Narragansett Ave., Newport
