Grab Your Paddles and Help Us Light Up the River During WaterFire’s Event On Saturday, September 15th

Clear Currents is the portion of the evening’s Waterfire event that incorporates 100 illuminated Japanese koi (fish) temporarily mounted on canoes and kayaks that registered participants will paddle up and down the river after sunset. The light from these brightly colored fish will beautifully compliment the 80 wood burning braziers installed on the river!
