Fruitlands Annual Bonfire, Saturday November 3, 2018 at 5 PM

posted Oct 23, 2018, 1:26 PM by Nashoba Valley Neighbors Webmaster

Help us say goodbye to the 2018 Main Season in style! We'll host our 7th annual bonfire on November 3rd. The event begins at 5pm and the fire will be lit as night falls around 6:15pm. Glow sticks, and s'more kits will be for sale (with a small fire pit for roasting marshmallows--we're not that crazy) and guests will be encouraged to write down a wish and tuck it in the large structure before we light it afire and send our hopes and dreams into the night sky. So bring the fam and enjoy a heart-warming fire on an autumn evening.

New this year, we will be joined by True West of Acton. Be sure to stop by their tent and grab a pint of one of their local craft brews available for purchase. 

Also joining us this year are Monique and Stephen of SoulWorks Rhythm, who will provide drums and facilitation of a community drum circle. Take a turn drumming with the group and enjoy the atmosphere of community music near the bonfire. 

This is a FREE community event

Extend your museum experience and join us early from 3-5pm for a Season Closing Celebration
