  1. We will be coming to Rhode Island for vacation in June and WaterFire has been recommended as a must see. Do you know what the June dates will be and is there a fee? Thank you.

    1. Hi Gina, typically we don’t have the season schedule dates available until the end of April. We are trying to release a partial schedule of select dates earlier this year. Stay tuned for updates. Thanks for supporting WaterFire Providence.
