Evenings of full WaterFire lightings, 5:30 pm
Discover the winding history and continued importance of Providence’s rivers! Urban outdoor sculpture and beautiful civic and commercial buildings of varied architectural styles provide the setting for stories of Providence’s fabled past and dynamic present. This 60-minute walk shares the history of Rhode Island’s capital city and the history of WaterFire.
This special RiverWalk will emphasize Gaspee-related sights: John Brown House, Brick Market House, Fenner’s Wharf, Joseph Brown’s House, site of the Sabin Tavern (corner Planet and South Main Street) and the information placard that tells about the Gaspee Affair and has a reproduction of the 1892 painting by Charles DeWolf Brownell called The Burning of the Gaspee.
The walk departs from the John Brown House Museum, 52 Power Street, Providence. $10 per person. Presented in collaboration with WaterFire Providence, and half of the ticket price will go to support WaterFire.
