I am originally from the Midwest, so WaterFire was a new thing to me when I first moved here almost ten years ago.
What amazed me most about WaterFire, was the fact that you had people from all different age groups, economic backgrounds, and ethnicities which in any other circumstances might be cause for some kind of friction (especially between us “older” folks and “those rowdy” teenagers) yet everybody sits in some kind of perfect harmony enjoying a common pleasure.
That’s probably the best way to describe WaterFire …harmonious. It amazes me every time I attend.
