Some good news for kids – the Easter Bunny is scheduled to hop through Newport on Saturday, April 11th. With the help of Newport Recreation and Newport Police Department, the bunny will try to drive through every neighborhood in the city for a quick visit, but will be following social distancing guidelines. The Easter Bunny will remain at his truck at all times and any families coming out to catch a glimpse should follow social distancing guidelines as well.

See the Bunny Trail with approximate times at Newport Recreation’s Facebook post and follow their page for updates.


September Supporter Drive.

You can have an impact. Help power What’s Up Newp’s coverage of COVID-19, the election, and your community

What’s Up Newp’s September supporter drive is underway. By the end of September, our goal is to see 250 of our loyal readers become What’s Up Newp supporters to help power our daily reporting on COVID-19, the 2020 Election, school reopenings, people & profiles, the social justice movement, arts & culture, and important journalism that is brewing in our newsroom.

When you invest in What’s Up Newp, you invest in your community. Since 2012, What’s Up Newp has been free to read, and we will always be, but we need your support to do what we do.

Will you support What’s Up Newp today?
