  • Have experienced water fire many times over the years and they keep making it more amazing every year.  more »
  • A must see! Really cool walking around with fires. Getting in boat to do the tour up river and back was memorable.  more »
  • Waterfire is very lovely. It is also very crowded when you are trying to watch and stroll. It's probably best for tourists: I have seen it over ten times and have gotten the gist.  more »

  • A very unique (and a little strange) experience. It really taps into nearly all of your senses (hearing, smelling, seeing). I went in November so there were very few artsy things going on but the lighting portion of the event was awesome.
  • Providence water fire is one of the most best attractions of Rhode Island. People from all over United States come around at certain times of the year to view our one and only waterfire lighting. It's a great place to bring friends, family, co-workers, or anyone you know. It's a night for everyone to get together and enjoy something as peaceful as fire on water and all of us has one. This place is a thing that you should do on your bucket list
  • Each time I've gone to Waterfire I've had a positive experience. We've been able to park in the mall, which isn't too far from the event itself. The music sets a great mood, and I also enjoy the food that can be found nearby.
  • The fires are beautiful and smell so good. And the music that plays all along the waterway is so relaxing. It's a really nice time.
  • I.love.this.place. The last WaterFire of the year was last weekend, but it should be scheduled for next year already. Such a mix of different art, from living statues, to bands, to glass blowing, to the RISD gallery near the river walk open. There are also a lot of businesses that converge on the event, from hawkers selling inflatable glow thingies, to a riverside two tiered club that offers good views and cocktails. Words cannot explain what is brought together in this, it is a moment to celebrate the Creative Capital, check it out, and see if you can bring such an event to your city!
