Waterfire (Sharon, PA) photo op, not a formal meetup

NOTE: The Buhl Community Recreation Center is near the center of the events. As far as I know, it is not an actual venue.  But if you head for it, you will find other events nearby.

Over fifty sparkling bonfires on the Shenango River, the aroma of cedar and pine in the air, flickering firelight and silhouettes of firetenders passing by the flames as you stroll along the river and city streets enjoying enchanting music, ethnic food tastings and performers from around the globe.  Dance to the sounds of a big band under the stars in an outdoor ballroom after participating in unique arts experiences throughout the day with the entire family.  This is WaterFire Sharon.

    If anyone made it to the Waterfire event, please post your photos. I fully intended to go, but got waylaid elsewhere. I decided that by the time I arrived it would be after 9 pm and I'd be so tired I'd want to turn around and head for home.

    If anyone wants to carpool from Cranberry or Zelienople, leaving from there around 4 pm on Sat, let me know. See comment below.

    I will be leaving late in the afternoon from Cranberry or Zelienople. If anyone wants to car-pool, I can take 3 passengers. I will stay until a little after it gets dark enough to take photos of the fires along the water, returning the our starting point around 11 pm.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
