  • On a cold night, all bundled up, we were humbled to watch the Veteran’s honored at the Water Fire event. We then strolled along the water watching the fires, visited an exhibit at the design institute...  more »

  • Very unique experience. Took the kids with us and they also enjoyed it. We walked from our hotel to the basin. Managed to get food and drink along the way. Here are two warnings - it is extremely crowded after the fires are lighted, and get food before you get to the basin (no food at the basin). Great fun for the family. Recommend that you see this at least once.
  • Water Fire was fantastic on Saturday night, 8/25/18. The music, braziers, and entertainers were terrific. Music honored Aretha Franklin and a wonderful selection of opera. Providence was in it's glory. Don't miss the rest of the season. Go to WaterFire 🔥. You won't be disappointed.
