2018 Full Season Schedule[/alert]
From the WaterFire website:
WaterFire, an award-winning sculpture by Barnaby Evans installed on the three rivers of downtown Providence, has been praised by Rhode Island residents and international visitors alike as a powerful work of art and a moving symbol of Providence’s renaissance. WaterFire’s over eighty sparkling bonfires, the fragrant scent of aromatic wood smoke, the flickering firelight on the arched bridges, the silhouettes of the firetenders passing by the flames, the torch-lit vessels traveling down the river, and the enchanting music from around the world engage all the senses and emotions of those who stroll the paths of Waterplace Park. WaterFire has captured the imagination of over ten million visitors, bringing life to downtown, and revitalizing Rhode Island’s capital city.
For sure! Great attribute of Providence.
What gets me is the continuing “Rhode Island mentality”.
As stated, “…been praised by Rhode Island residents and international visitors alike…”
It is NOT just a RI event…more than 30% of its regular visitors come from the rest of the Providence Metro (southeastern MA) !!
