WaterFire is a tradition here in Providence. Throughout the summer (depending on sponsors), cauldrons are lit at sunset all along the river through the city. We had heard about a lot about it even before we moved here, but last night was our first experience. It was amazing! The energy in the city was exciting. The music was enchanting. The view was mesmerizing.
Vendors are set up all along the river. There are musical acts and street performers. The coolest, though, are the gondolas gliding through the water right next to the lit fires. Not sure how much something like that would cost, but I’m hoping for a date night in a gondola next summer. A girl can dream, right?
I certainly don’t have the knowledge or the camera equipment to take good night shots on our camera, so this is the best I could do. They certainly don’t do it justice, but hopefully just the glimpse of what we saw will encourage you to join us for WaterFire 2013!
