Providence, RI

Since 1994 Providence, Rhode Island, residents have enjoyed what is known as WaterFire -- a public art installation and annual festival .  There are 86 anchored burning braziers (each with approximately 33 pieces of wood) that are mounted on steel tripods and float just above the surface of the waterways that flow through downtown Providence.  In the photo below be sure to notice the boats that are full of additional wood as those vessels operate for the duration of the event as the firewood is replenished in the 86 receptacles.  There is music along with vendors and thousands of folks who enjoy the riverfront walkways and surrounding streets.  Truly, this is a magnificent event.
