The city of Providence is rolling out the red carpet for Netroots Nation. They’ll be conducting a full WaterFire installation, lighting up over 80 braziers in WaterPlace Park. The braziers are lit 20 minutes after sunset and burn until about midnight.

This award-winning sculpture by Barnaby Evans installed on the three rivers of downtown Providence, has been praised by Rhode Island residents and international visitors alike as a powerful work of art and a moving symbol of Providence’s renaissance. WaterFire’s over eighty sparkling bonfires, the fragrant scent of aromatic wood smoke, the flickering firelight on the arched bridges, the silhouettes of the firetenders passing by the flames, the torch-lit vessels traveling down the river, and the enchanting music from around the world engage all the senses and emotions of those who stroll the paths of Waterplace Park.
