Providence’s epic WaterFire is an experience that engages all of the senses. You see the fires floating atop the river, smell the wood burning, feel the warm embers touch down on your skin, hear the crackling of the flames… all while tasting treats from local restaurants that set up for the event. Created by local artist Barnaby Evans, WaterFire is an award-winning artistic installation that brings the entire city out to play. With lightings happening all summer long and through November, you will want to make plans to visit one of the city's most beloved events.
