Iron Pour 10/29/2010 -
Friday, October 29th // 6PM
Rain Date: October 30th
Join the Iron Guild for Molten Metal Monster Mayhem at our 5th Annual Halloween Iron Pour!
Doors open at 6:00 pm. Iron Pour begins promptly at 7:00 pm.
Each year, the Steel Yard teams up with the Iron Guild to demonstrate the industrial arts in an exciting, accessible way. Our annual Iron Pour is a luminous spectacle in celebration of the fall season here in Providence. This year's performance promises to be in keeping with the dramatic displays of the past with a monster theme.
Our incredible displays of molten metal in the past have included: liquid iron being poured into a huge, hand-carved wooden skull and casting the insides of pumpkins while a giant steel one was brought to life. Like those of the past, the 2010 Iron Pour is sure to be a sight to see during this Halloween weekend.
The celebration will be a family-friendly event featuring food and drink vendors from the Providence Juice Company truck and more. A live soundtrack is provided by the Empty House Cooperative, and there's even a chance to buy handmade art pieces at the Steel Yard's ceramics cooperative bowl sale. For those who have never visited the Steel Yard before, this event is a great opportunity to explore our recent environmental renovations made possible by government grants and generous donations from local businesses and private sources.
