Water Fire

I was in Providence this past weekend.  There was a Water Fire event in the downtown.  


Rows of pillars run down the center of the river.  On top of each is a brazier, a holder for logs.
After dark, staff light the logs and huge loudspeakers project music.  Water Fire is a popular event.
The river banks and nearby parks are full of people.  Great fun.

Seems like a great event. Do the authorities have to pull many people out of the water? Fine night photo.

Wow, what a cool event.

Water Fire? That's new to me. Very dramatic! Are the pillars permanent, or just placed there for the event?
