In Providence, RI, there was an effort to make the rivers in the city a place where people could come together and enjoy a safe, beautiful celebration with music, food, entertainment, and.... FIRE in the rivers! It's wonderful, and they build fires in the brasiers in the river and they are tended by volunteers who dress in costumes, and travel in boats. Gondolas full of people enjoying the evenings go up and down the rivers. People sit on stairs and benches that line the river.
