Luc and Jen's Annual Bonfire Party
Calling all party goers! It's that time again!! Jennifer and I are hosting our annual bonfire party on Saturday, October 24th out here in the sticks.
We had a blast last year with a record attendance. The light freezing-drizzle didn't stop us from having fun, and instead kept most of us close to the 15 ft raging bonfire. This years' event is expected to bigger and better. To put in into perspective, I cut down two huge trees since last years event and all of the brush from those projects has been stacked and is ready to be lit. We're hoping for some warmer temperatures, but dress appropriately. The the party will go on no matter what mother nature decides to do... after all, she's invited too. :P
Here is a picture of how small last years flame was. :)
We had great success with last year's party without purchasing a keg, and minimal food. We're going to approach it the same way this year. I would also like to suggest a "wine" oriented party if you feel adventurouse. A few people brought out some very good wines last year, and I could definitely get used to that. Know that if you do put your wine out to share, be warned that it could go fast though. <hiccup> :) Of course, bring any "choice beer" that you might like to drink as well. I'll probably buy a case or two of some cheap canned beer, and we'll have a variety of pop (or 'soda' depending on your roots), juice boxes, caprisuns, etc...
Each year, we have hay rides, hot dogs, marshmallows, s'mores, juice boxes, and lots of food. There will be tons of of stuff for them to do as well. We typically setup some tents and small slides to keep the little ones entertained. I must admit that our girls are very good hostesses. :) This is a very kid-safe event. Jennifer usually buys a whole bunch of glow sticks for the kids to keep around their necks, so they're very visible and can you see where they're going.
Actually, the more I think about it, coming earlier might be a good idea. :)
If those directions scare you, again, don't worry there will be signs.
Feel free to bring your tents! The last couple of years, nobody has ended up sleeping on the
hill. If anybody does plan to camp, there is plenty of room. You can
setup your site far enough from the bonfire if you decide to call it in
If I missed anything or if you have any questions, please email me: lucas at hardbarger dot com.
Thank you, Maxim, for some of the pictures above from last years event!
I stole them from your online album. :) Sorry you can't make it this year, I'll drink one for you.
Jennifer and I are throwing another party on our hill. This years
event is being held on November 8th.
