    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!

    You'll be moved by the mood, the music, the magic. It's mesmerizing! Make your your way to Gondola Landing for the best vantage point. The smell of the wood burning is amazing in itself!

    The music, the food, the crowds, the smell of the wood burning.. Best later in the evening when the crowds have thinned out.

    Fire in fire holders atop a dirty river and crowded sidewalks with Mexicans screaming and untrained children. But hey, what else do we have to do in Rhode island?
