There is always interesting vendors and booths around this state of our city's namesake and the tunnels during the many festivals and events in Sawyer Point.

So many people seem to view Cincinnatus as a welcome friend they are seeing. I especially like when he is dressed up for different occasions.

I don't think the statue itself is worth a special trip, but the surrounding park (Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove) are lovely if you're looking to take a walk. If you cross the Purple People Bridge, it takes you right into Newport on the Levy which has a movie theatre, a little shopping, the aquarium, and plenty of restaurants.

Saw this statue on our walking tour. Nice. Interesting to see if you are already in the vicinity but I don't think I'd make a special trip to see it.
