The St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Newport kicked off the start of the 2016 season for the Varnum Continentals Marching Militia. The streets were packed, the crowds lively, and the participating Historic RI Military Commands were out in force and looking sharp. Afterwards, the Newport Artillery Company Armory was open for refreshments and a look at their impressive collection.
