WATERFIRE WEEKENDS IN PROVIDENCE

September 26, 2013 ~ Another celebration of WaterFire will take place in Providence this weekend. One of my absolute favorite performances will take place – the koi fish procession. This is truly remarkable and if you haven’t seen it…you surely should! Imagine…crackling fires along the Providence River with illuminated over-sized koi “swimming” upstream above the flames. It’s so beautiful that it’s breath-taking.   Volunteers dedicate their time (and canoes, kayaks, etc) to assist in this project of art.  In fact, WaterFire could not take place without their loyal team of volunteers and the donations they collect throughout the season. Be sure to stop by and see how you can help.

So don’t miss out on this weekend’s WaterFire. The koi fish and all the other events will certainly make for a fun evening.
