AUGUST 22, 2013 ~ They’re everywhere! Halloween decorations and displays, bags and bags of candy…even costumes! Don’t let it get you down! Summer isn’t over yet. In fact, it’s still SIZZLING in Providence. The WaterFire season is in full force! What’s WaterFire you say? I can’t believe you haven’t heard! It’s an event perfectly unique to Providence! Created by Barnaby Evans over 15 years ago, WaterFire delight hundreds of thousands of visitors (and locals) each year. Imagine 80 bonfires a-glow along the Providence River surrounded by music, dancing, performers, artists and rich cultural events. Combine that with all Providence has to offer with its award-winning restaurants, museums, shopping and architectural beauty and now you have no excuse but to visit! The Providence Marriott Downtown’s WaterFire package invites you to drink it all in. Each package comes with deluxe overnight accommodations, breakfast buffet for two and two signature cocktails at your choice of the Bluefin Lounge, AQUA, voted Providence’s BEST outdoor lounge or in the hotel’s lobby, the Greatroom. This package is only available on nights when WaterFire is taking place so be sure to check the schedule below:
