This past Saturday night Ignite, a fire and street food festival after dark
event came to Union Square complete with fire spinners and a array of jaw dropping entertainment!

They recognized Union Square that is
quickly becoming a meca for foodies, so they presented a new food-lovers event called Ignite!

Spectators enjoyed treats like samosas from India, char-grilled barbecue from Brazil, Salvadoran pupusas, and even homemade popsicles with unique flavors like watermelon and mint!

While the crowds were nibbling away they were feasting their eyes on fire spinners and belly dancers that were performing in the square as well as choosing to peruse the many local artisans that were selling goods on the streets.

Many stopped by the Somerville Arts Council table and checked out Nibble, their new book on food and culture in Union Square!

From interactive food demonstrations to an 8 foot tiger head this festival guaranteed and delivered excitement, thrills, and a full stomach!
