Camp Meade’s version of the Holidays, New Years and Solstice Celebration. We will keep the sparks of the New Deal burning and have a fire in the historic fireplace built for the Camp Meade by civilian conservation corps in the 1930’s.
We will have artistic warming barrels with fires in them for hanging around and a Large urn of fire for warmth and conviviality.
We will have performances by Cirque de Fuego, a troupe of fire breathing and twirling artists. And others!
We will also have a couple of propane fired poofers which will poof fire from time to time, just for fun.
We have a large evergreen sculpture/maze that will become our Bonfire to light and keep everyone warm by.
We will make the Middlesex World Record largest S’More. The ingredients for the S’more will all come from Red Hen and Nutty Stephs. The crackers & marshmallows of the S’More will be baked on site by the Stupendous Bakers at Red Hen.Nutty Steph’s Fantabulous chocolatiers will provide the essential chocolate for the Middlesex world record S’More.
The S’more’s will be approximately four feet by eight feet.
We invite people of all ages and stripes to come and help assemble the oversized S’Mores and then when assembled and all the ingredients melded together we will cut it up and hand out S’Mores to all attendees on a first come first server basis. All of this will be overseen by our official S’more’sters Shepherds appropriately attired for the gravity of the rituals.
We will have music provided by DJ Newt Wells of Peak Entertainment.
There will be a bar with beer and wine and hot chocolate and a food truck with nourishing soul and body warming delights along with Focaccia and Soups from Red Hen.
The Middlesex Volunteer Fire Department will be on hand to hose us down as needed. Learn about the importance of becoming a member of the Fire Department and volunteering to be part of the team that protects our community.
There will be a bouncy house for the youngsters.
We would like to have everyone decorate the large Evergreen Burning Bush sculpture that will then warm us all.
We encourage everyone to bring a note or message or memento that has some meaning to them, a memory of some kind. They could be about the past (last years resolutions perhaps) or the future (next years hope for the future) and attach them to what will become our Bon Fire once it is lit. These will be our Burnaments and they can be hung on the structure from now until It all goes up in smoke!
Come attired in garb strung with lights; A hat with lights, a suit that glows. We are turning the corner from the longest darkest days to the new fresh and lighter days ahead.
Your friends and neighbors will be there too. Come Celebrate S’Morestice and the not to be missed Bon Fire Place.
With love and warmth for all. Warm the Body, Warm the Soul.
December 29th from 4:30pm to 8pm approximately. Dress up! Dress Warm!
