Starry, Starry Night.....

Visitors to WaterFire can "wish upon a star" of their own at this magical installation in Memorial Park where large blue paper star lanterns are nestled in the treetops of this dark and dreamy grove. Volunteers are needed to help welcome visitors, assist in hanging stars, and placing Luminaria lanterns where they are needed. This is a quiet, yet busy location; volunteers can expect frequent interactions with visitors.

Parking Location: 200 Dyer Street, Providence RI 02903

Check-In Location: Across from 129 Dyer Street, Providence RI 02903

Point of Contact: Gary Saint Laurent, c: 401-481-1469

WaterFire Volunteer Attire:

  • All black head to toe - you are a part of the art!
  • Black mask (optional) - WaterFire will have black masks on site
  • Closed toe shoes - there are many areas with cobblestone

Suggestion: No large personal items and weather appropriate clothing.

WaterFire ditches plastic water bottles! We eliminated the plastic from constructing the braziers and we want to reduce our carbon footprint by eliminating the need for single-use plastic bottles. We ask that you please bring a reusable water bottle to your shift and you will be able to refill on site.

Volunteer Team Requests:

  • If you are unable to make it to your shift, please let me know as soon as possible or unregister on the website.

  • Please be on time for your shift! WaterFire volunteers have the most important role to make a WaterFire lighting possible.

  • WaterFire will go on regardless of the weather, so please plan accordingly. We will be in touch if there are any emergencies.
