PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Providence is celebrating its designation as a "Playful City USA" by a nonprofit group dedicated to play.

The city on Friday kicks off a weekend of events to mark the honor.

The group KaBOOM! Chose Providence because it says Rhode Island's capital city makes it a priority to get children active and playing.

A local group, Partnership for Providence Parks, is hosting events starting Friday and lasting through Sunday at more than two dozen neighborhood parks and other venues. They will offer games, music, and arts and crafts activities.
