Between May and October, the WaterFire Festival lights up Providence, the charming capital of Rhode Island.
The award-winning art installation by Barnaby Evans, installed in three rivers that merge in downtown Providence, is a powerful art experience celebrating fire and water, earth and air.
In the flickering light of more than 100 sparkling bonfires, crowds of visitors stroll through Waterplace Park enjoying the music and entertainment before a late meal in downtown Providence or Federal Hill.
The free event has been viewed by more than ten million visitors worldwide. It is staged by volunteers and the next full fires is slated for Saturday, 26 May. The fires will be lit shortly after sunset (about 8pm) and will burn until midnight. Read the full schedule here.
