The WaterFire taking place Saturday night will be a special
one, as it is the first-ever community-wide celebration of Veterans to take
place on such a large scale in the state of Rhode Island.
The event is entirely dedicated to honoring the nation's
Veterans and military personnel and their families.
To kickstart the night at 4:45, a 100-Veteran Torch
Procession and 200-Veteran Ring of Fire will proceed in Waterplace Basin,
led by the RI Professional Firefighters Pipes and Drums. Then there will be a
presentation of the colors while the Navy Band Northeast and Army 88th
Band play the National Anthem.
