This will be the fifth full lighting this year for Waterfire. Over eighty bonfires will be lit along the river in downtown Providence.

There will be torch-lit vessels that travel

WaterFire has been enjoyed by of over ten million visitors since its flames were first lit in 1994. I will say that when we went to the show two weeks ago it was without a doubt the largest crowd I have ever seen and still it was fantastic.
