A look back:
More than 40,000 visitors took to the streets with the FirstWorks Festival: On the Plaza on September 29, 2012. Audiences flipped out watching a spectacular vertical performance held 30-stories in the air and were inspired by a creative smorgasbord of over 200 performers. Complete with the heat of a full Waterfire lighting, festival participants discovered a world of culture at this free festival of music, dance and performance in Providence's Greater Kennedy Plaza.
