Gordon at WaterFire


Reconnect at WaterFire

Saturday, April 9th, 5:30-9:30pm
lighting ceremony honoring Gordon faculty and staff at 7:30pm
rain date April 14th

Gordon has partnered with WaterFire on their first lighting of the year. Families, faculty, alumni and the extended Gordon family are all invited to reconnect in the basin of Waterplace Park, surrounded by the sights, sounds and aromas of this long-running installation. It's a celebration of community that is free and open to the public. Gordon will have light bites and a raffle, and the WaterFire team is calling in the food trucks.

This is the third time that Gordon has partnered with WaterFire on a celebration. For the first two, in 2018 and 2019, Gordon was one of several sponsors of a full lighting that went down the river. This year, Gordon will be the sole sponsor of a basin lighting, the first lighting of the year.
