Thousands packed downtown Sharon Saturday for the second Water Fire event on the Shenango River.

There were different things happening all day, ending with a lighting ceremony of cauldrons placed in the river.

Organizers estimated attendance was just as high as the first event, if not better.

Water Fire has brought a lot of economic success to the area.

“It’s something different and I think people are looking for a sense of community, and I think Water Fire definitely provides that,” said Tracy Schliep, Event Staff.

The last Water Fire event of the year will be October 12.
