Sadly, tonight’s WaterFire lighting had to be cancelled due to the weather:


WaterFire will have special Christmas editions of their fires running tonight and Saturday evening (weather permitting):

Enjoy the spirit of Christmas for two days at the 3rd Annual Very Special Christmas WaterFire Weekend benefiting and showcasing the incredible work of the Providence Rescue Mission and as a wonderful gift to the City of Providence! Thanks to an anonymous donor the 41 braziers running from Waterplace Park Basin to Steeple Street will burn brightly with Christmas spirit for two days this year! Festivities will commence in Waterplace Park at 5:00pm on Friday, December 13th and then again on Saturday, December 14th! The fires will be lit from 5:00pm-9:30pm both evenings.

Watch updates on WaterFire’s Facebook Page and Twitter for updates on how this weekend’s storm may impact Saturday’s lighting.

On Saturday, September 21st from 11 AM to 5 PM, The Providence Foundation and Downtown Providence Improvement District will host a Downtown Providence Living Tour showcasing downtown’s transformation into a desirable mixed-use district. Ranked by the real estate website Walk Score® as the most walkable neighborhood in the city and described as a “Walker’s Paradise,” downtown Providence offers residents access to restaurants, shops, cultural offerings, transportation options, and other amenities within a few blocks. The tour will feature nine properties in the downtown core, including The 903, Arcade Providence, Avalon at Center Place, The Promenade, Providence G, Regency Plaza, The Residences, Waterplace, and Westminster Lofts. The tour is self-guided, and people are encouraged to walk or bike from place to place, although shuttle service will also be provided.

Tour organizer Joelle Kanter, program manager for The Providence Foundation, says, “Whether people are considering a move into downtown Providence, or they simply want to preview city’s latest developments, we invite everyone to see how the neighborhood has noticeably evolved since our last tour in 2010.” In 2011 and 2012, 35 new retail businesses opened downtown, and this year, 10 have already opened. The quality and breadth of offerings are steadily improving, with new additions including popular eateries such as birch, Figidini, and UMelt.
