Camp Meade’s Winter S’Morestice Celebration
December 29, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Come one, come all to Camp Meade’s Winter S’Morestice Celebration to help create the world’s largest S’More and celebrate the light and warmth of the historic fireplace built for Camp Meade, Middlesex, with the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s.
The December 29 event features music, food, fire artists and dancers as well as ‘burnaments’ which folks will affix to a bonfire structure and send them off into the great beyond. There will be an evergreen maze as well as a bouncy house for kids.
This holiday, New Year and solstice celebration will offer family friendly fun, fun with fires and of course, the world’s largest S’More. It gets underway at 4:30pm and runs through 8pm.
The cracker portion of the S’More will be baked on site by the bakers at Red Hen. These very same bakers will also make the marshmallows which will grace the giant S’more. Nutty Steph’s chocolatiers will provide the essential chocolate for the Middlesex world record S’More which will be approximately four by eight feet.
The fire-centric focus of the event goes beyond the giant bonfire, there will be warming barrels of fires for hanging around and a large urn of fire for warmth and conviviality. There will be performances by Cirque de Fuego, a troupe of fire breathing and twirling artists and others. There will also be a couple of propane fired poofers which will poof fire from time to time just for fun.
Music will be provided by DJ Newt Wells of Peak Entertainment and there will be a bar with beer and wine and hot chocolate and a food truck with focaccia and soups from Red Hen and more.
The Middlesex Volunteer Fire Department will be on hand to hose things down as needed. People will also be able to learn about the importance of becoming a member of the Fire Department and volunteering to be part of the team that protects the community.
