(6.23) It looks like the weather will clear up well before ignition; the WaterFire website is updated regularly regarding such matters. Shouldn’t be a problem though. On tap for Saturday,

7pm to 8pm — TD Ballroom, free swing dance lessons, then dance till midnight, Westminster at Weybosset

8pm to 10pm — along the river, Gargoyles, Oracles, Spogga, Origami Guy

Sunset to 11pm — Starry Starry Night (pictured here, held every full lighting)

One hundred luminous blue stars are suspended in the triangular grove of trees in Memorial Park. Beneath the beautiful blue stars are hundreds of Luminaria candle lanterns flickering on the lawn. Add your light to the night and make a special dedication in the Starry, Starry Night field in exchange for a $20 donation. Write your wish on a white ribbon and attach it to your own luminous blue star, which you can hang amongst the trees in the constellation overhead for all to view and enjoy. For this donation you will also receive two Luminaria candle lanterns with special dedication cards to be displayed underneath your personal star.

WaterFire, 8:24pm to midnight, Saturday, June 23, downtown
