Waterfire

Some of downtown Providence and the waterfire

Yesterday Evey and I took a ride down to help Kevin move into Bryant University. Afterward we headed over to Providence with my parents to see Waterfire. Finding ourselves with a few hours to kill, Evey and I hit the Dave & Busters arcade to play some games. Came out with a travel mug, mint chocolate ring pop, squishy light up ball, yo-yo, rubber frog, and almost a frisbee but the cashier ripped me off!

Anyways, once it got dark we headed back out to the river, where they lit lots of pods along the river on fire via boats and torches. There were pathways following the river that were filled with people, and the occasional opera singer lit by torch light. Watched the madness, got some food from street vendors, and headed home to Boston.
