The Avenue Concept will be creating a nighttime public art gallery with illumination, sound and cultural experiences, offering different ways to interact with mural and sculpture exhibits throughout Downtown. Enjoy ice skating performances presented by FirstWorks, one of Rhode Island’s leading arts and cultural organizations. From tree lightings to holiday shopping events, the city will be aglow with warm light and holiday cheer.
On Saturday, December 3rd, Santa’s Village opens at 4:30 p.m. and Santa will arrive by boat during the WaterFire lighting at 5:30 p.m. Each of the three nights of the WaterFire Holiday Celebration will feature Holiday ArtMart vendors and food trucks offering seasonal treats.
