The Prometheus Society at WaterFire Providence

If you have ever experienced WaterFire, then you understand the indescribable sense of peace, community, art, excitement, and solidarity you felt, WaterFire touches all of the senses and invites people from all walks of life to come and celebrate together.

WaterFire’s over eighty sparkling bonfires, the fragrant scent of aromatic wood smoke, the flickering firelight on the arched bridges, the silhouettes of the fire tenders 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. WaterFire has captured the imagination of over ten million visitors, bringing life to downtown, and revitalizing Rhode Island’s capital city.

We want to make sure that WaterFire continues to touch all the lives of generations to come.
