WaterFire Walking Tour – Before the Fires are Lit!

“Given that this was our first and possibly only time that we would be in the US when WaterFire is on we decided to go on the tour. It was the best decision we could have made. Witnessing the event would have been beautiful without the tour but having the explanation of the state of the downtown area in Providence before the programme and then the thinking behind creating the event as well as the logistics behind it significantly enhanced our experience.

Thank you to [WaterFire] the team for a wonderful night.”

Take a walking tour with one of our knowledgeable staff and volunteers to get an inside look into the history, theory of design and management of WaterFire. Get the inside story of WaterFire with exciting walking tours during every full lighting of WaterFire during the 2018 season. This reservation only tour allows those who want to learn the ins, outs, and background of the magic of WaterFire. For a donation of $10 registrants will walk the length of the canal with a tour guide and land at the basin prior to lighting. Registrants of the Walking Tour have the option to take advantage of a reserved standing space* on the deck of Skyline at Waterplace.

*Please note that the reserved area on the deck at Skyline is standing space only, not a table. This space is reserved for our participants for a maximum of ONE HOUR. We encourage tour attendees to call ahead to reserve a table for dinner and drinks prior to the basin lighting. Mention you are attending a WaterFire Walking Tour!*
