6. Check out Providence’s Waterfire
Head to Providence, R.I. for an annual display of art and renaissance. Created by award-winning sculptor Barnaby Evans, the display is a series of about 100 bonfires that blaze just above the surface of the three rivers that pass through the middle of downtown Providence in Waterplace Park. As visitors enjoy the artwork, specially selected music consisting of recorded natural sounds related to the ritual, religious and symbolic sources of the sculpture plays in the background. The Waterfire seasons runs from the end of May through November.
