Comments, suggestions, corrections please. What I was trying to say is below:
fire on the water
Last night my family went to the city of Providence.
A river is in this city.
Artists put objects on top of the river.
Wood is in these objects.
The artists go to these objects using a boat.
The artists make fires on these objects.
The moving fires light up the river.
The artists play music.
The music was nice.
Many people come to watch the fires.
The artists give some people rides in the boats.
The weather was warm.
My family watched the fires on the water.
We liked this.
I felt like I was in times of old.
