RiverFire

Just as the nights are getting colder in New England, the City of Berlin will be warming things up with one of the best fall festivals around—RiverFire! Come to “the city that trees built” to catch a full day of fun, ending with some dramatic fires on the river.

RiverFire burns bigger and brighter every year, and this year there are some fun new activities for everyone. The gates of the Service Credit Union Heritage Park, 942 Main Street, Berlin, NH will open to activities and vendors for visitors of ALL ages. Admission to the park is FREE.

RiverFire features fun, family-oriented activities such as:

  • Pumpkins on the bridge
  • Hay rides
  • Hot air balloon rides
  • The “Not So Scary” Halloween Party
  • A costume parade
  • Live Music
  • Mouth watering food
  • Spectacular fires on the water
  • RiverFire 5K
  • Lighting of the Fires on the River                                                                                    At dusk, the Androscoggin River will be lit up with fires that appear to be floating on the water! The blazes will actually burn on the historic boom piers that dot the river. These piers were used during the height of the logging era, when they separated and guided the many trees that were sent down the river to the mills of Berlin. For RiverFire, these old piers will be stacked with skids, which when set aflame create a dynamic contrast of light over the dark waters. Take a walk along the bridge and admire the wonderful glowing carved pumpkins on the bridge.

RiverFire is the hottest event of the season.  It is a spectacle you won’t want to miss!
For more information, call 603-752-6060 or find RiverFire Berlin, NH on Facebook.
