Hearne Christopher offers more comments on Waterfire
Sources say the well-intentioned promoters behind the Kansas City edition of Waterfire on the Plaza have been walking it hard this past week. The New Age spin off of the annual Providence, Rhode Island event took a seriously, fatal bullet last weekend. That after organizers made a last minute decision to go forward with the outdoor burning pylons on Brush Creek in the midst of one of the worst rain, hail and lightning storms of the year. With an October 2nd rain date in the bank, WaterFire blew it by ignoring the obvious weather and safety conditions and paid the price.
