Now it’s up to the Public to decide their People’s Choice Favorite!
Newport RI, April 25, 2022…. A record number of Newport’s finest shops have gone “daffy” while decorating their storefront windows, participating in Newport’s Daffodil Days annual storefront window display contest.
“We’re delighted that a record 35 retail shops throughout the area “got their yellow out,” demonstrating their creativity and enthusiasm as they made Newport come alive this spring,” said Newport in Bloom chair Kiki McMahan. “We’d like to thank all the retailers who participated with hope their sales season is as bright and bountiful as the daffodils throughout town.”
