WaterFire Sharon Offers Braziers to Honor Loved Ones

June 19, 2017

SHARON, Pa. – “WaterFire Sharon” is offering braziers this lighting season that will be dedicated to memorialize or honor loved ones. A limited number of braziers will be used beginning with the July 15 lighting.

“Gary Meszaros, the local businessman who was instrumental in bringing WaterFire to Sharon passed away unexpectedly and a brazier was built in his memory by his family members and closest friends, and filled with articles meaningful to the family. We want to offer that same opportunity to others,” said Chip Mastrian, co-chair of WaterFire Sharon.

Three levels of participation will be offered in dedicating a brazier: level one for $50, level two for $200 and level three for $250. Different perks are offered with each level.

WaterFire Sharon was introduced in the summer of 2013. Braziers are placed in the Shenango River and fired with cedar and pine. After a day-long arts and music festival, the evening activities commence with a ceremonial lighting of the braziers, which remain burning until midnight. The music festival continues throughout the evening with live entertainment on an indoor stage and several outdoor stages.
