(5.28) Tonight is the first full WaterFire of the season with 80 braziers flaming away. The music playlist includes Bach, Vivaldi, Kareem Roustom, Yo-Yo Ma, ‘Vissi D’Arte’ by Puccini (the goosebump song), the Low Anthem, and ‘Lake Bed’ by Brown Bird. Many of the songs on the playlist are available on iTunes. When you download a track from the playlist, a portion of each purchase is returned to WaterFire Providence. It is also a Spotify playlist. Head upstream to take a load off.
Gerbermuhle: Biergarten Unter den Weiden in partnership with Trinity Brewhouse and featuring drinks from Little Bitte Artisanal Cocktails. The new beer garden with German beer and food focusing on Frankfurt specialties is located just upstream of Waterplace Basin in the heart of the downtown river park, under the willow trees at the foot of the IGT building. Forty five tables, specially made by WaterFire will mount on the river railing overlooking the double row of bonfires for your dining pleasure.
Also the origami guy, living statues, starry starry night, Kung Fu and Lion Dance Club, and Taiko drumming.
