WaterFire BallroomFor the first time since 2012 we will once again be activating the WaterFire Ballroom at Turk’s Head Plaza in Providence’s Financial District. This event is being made possible by National Grid to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Providence Police Department.

We are pleased to be bringing back a crowd favorite for their 10th year performing on a WaterFire stage, Roger Ceresi’s “All Starz”! The night will also feature our dancing partners, the Providence Swings giving dance lessons to the crowd from 7:00 – 8:00pm, and a special musical performance by Tony Cerbo.

“Roger Ceresi’s ‘All Starz’ will rock, swing and roll on this fantastic night in celebration of 150 years of the Providence Police Department. We are proud to be associated with all the great people (WaterFire leaders and visitors) for the last decade of events! Thank you and Rock On!” -Roger Ceresi
