Bonfire at New Smyrna Beach

There are bonfire rings on various Volusia county beaches - I've reserved one for March 8th, 2014. Its not a full moon (they were all reserved), but the 1st quarter, so no moonrise, but plenty of moonlight. I'll be bringing a portable table and firewood. This will be a BYO food and drink, and anything you want to share.

    For all you who wimped out because it was a little cold, you missed a great time. You also missed the Canadian Biker Firemen who showed up and provided extra entertainment...

    Sorry the weather is a little to chilly . I hope we do it again when it is a little warmer

    March 7, 2014

    • JP

      They don't allow the bonfires during the summer months because of turtle nesting, so we have to do in the cooler months.

    I have a table I can bring.

    March 5, 2014

  • JP

    As of now, the weather forecast looks good. Given the number of people who are coming, we may need more firewood if we want a big fire, and maybe an extra table.
    There are tables and grills in the pavilions, so if you want to cook something, they should be available.

    March 3, 2014

    • Ivelisse

      I will get some wood

      March 4, 2014

    • Bruce
