The City of Central Falls will open the state's first urban campground Friday evening.

The River Island Campground will open on a 4 acre property along the Blackstone on the outskirts of River Island park.

The grand opening of the first campground on the Blackstone River will feature hotdogs cooked by Central Falls Mayor James Diossa and a campfire and camping demonstrations led by Boy Scouts Troop 3.

The public is welcome to come join the party and those who are adventurous are invited to pitch a tent and spend the night.

The park is located at 1461 High Street in Central Falls.
