Our WaterFire story began when our son, Ted, started at Brown University. We heard about WaterFire in an orientation pamphlet and were intrigued. Not knowing what really to expect, we ambled “down the hill” one night and in doing so, our lives were changed – forever.
We were totally captivated by the pageantry of the WaterFire spectacle. We meandered along the water’s edge, mingling with others, under the streets, and were transported to the time of pirates and medieval torches (my husband’s favorite part). We watched and listened, ooh’d and aah’d over the music and lighting ceremony and the gondolas floating past. We stopped for dessert, people watched, and just enjoyed the delightful atmosphere of the evening. It was and remains a magical evening.
