Providence RI WaterFire meets Rome Italy WaterFire

Providence RI Waterfire meets Rome Italy Waterfire


The Providence RI real estate skyline is bordered by water and has a wonderful canal that runs through the middle of it off of Route 195.

From May to October the Providence WaterFires are held on the canals with 100+ braziers (iron wood holders) blazing throughout the canal.


Fires stoked by gondola volunteers from dusk to the late night and wonderful Tuscan music either live or piped through the sound system occurs along the canal.  It is a HUGE people draw from all over New England.


 Providence Waterfires birthed this process and spectacular event.  Now Rome Italy wants to introduce WaterFires to their historic city.  Our Providence Mayor will inaugurate Waterfires in Rome, Italy with an inaugural lighting of 30 braziers on Rome’s Eternal city’s on the  Tiber River.  “Greater Travel has ranked WaterFire, along with Paris at nightfall, among its greatest destinations after dark in the world,” said Mayor Taveras. This is exciting news to us who are diehard WaterFire fans.

There is not a month during this incendiary act that I miss this event.  To smell the burning wood wafting through the evening smells, the din of people milling around and sitting along the canal, embracing the moments with great music and sometimes swing dancing in the Plaza.  So much of a Providence experience and a must destination when you come to my RI stomping grounds!

This is goes back to 1997 and WaterFire has taken shape and brought thousands to Providence and Rhode Island to experience this novel and sustaining artistic share.  Waterfront RI real estate is where I spend my time but in the evenings at least once a month, experiencing this sustainable art form is a must.

Enjoying the wonderful restaurants around Providence are all part of the atmosphere it brings to WaterFire night!
