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

    You can go on a boat ride sipping a glass of wine while watching the floating bonfires. Amazing experience!

    A vibrant street festival capped by a blazing nighttime spectacle: 100 bonfires set afloat at the confluence of 3 rivers.

    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?

    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!
