    Every other Saturday from May through November, the WaterFire event lights up Providence. It starts at sundown & goes until midnight. Park as close to the waterfront as you can, then continue on foot. Read more

    Every other Saturday, 100 bonfires burn in the center of three rivers that flow through downtown. It's awesome to see, plus there is plenty of live music and performers traveling throughout!
