Foursquare Tips

  • One of The best things about providence, be ready to walk if you want the full experience..come early and park in the mall for those penny pinchers out there!
  • Definitely something to check out in Providence over the summer!
  • Every other Saturday from May through November, the WaterFire event lights up Providence. It starts at sundown & goes until midnight. Park as close to the waterfront as you can, then continue on foot.
  • You can go on a boat ride sipping a glass of wine while watching the floating bonfires. Amazing experience!
  • Every other Saturday, 100 bonfires burn in the center of three rivers that flow through downtown. It's awesome to see, plus there is plenty of live music and performers traveling throughout!
  • A vibrant street festival capped by a blazing nighttime spectacle: 100 bonfires set afloat at the confluence of 3 rivers.
