    If you enjoy playing with fire, poi, or other related flo arts and you have a renegade gene then Free Ignition is your ticket for a fun night out. Free Ignition usually takes place every Thursday from about 8:55 to 11:45 at the band shell in East River Park. It was started by Phoenix Feeley In 2008 after returning from a festival and wishing New York City Had a place to spin fire. It became popular quickly and now attracts about forty to 60 participants. Skill levels vari from novis to expert and if you never spun fire before, this is an excellent place to learn. It is where I spun fire for the first time.
   For more info you can check out there page on Facebook called Free Ignition. It's definitely a great way to experience underground NYC.
