Arrive early at Ninigret Park, by 4:30 pm is recommended, to attend this year's bonfire tradition, dating back to 2005. It will be lit between 5 and 5:15 pm and will probably last about 45 minutes, so it will make a good start to your New Year's celebrations.
Frank "Frankie Pallets" Glista has built a beautiful structure, with pallets donated by Arnold Lumber, for this year's bonfire. 300 pallets were used in this year's creation. The town is preparing to provide cookies and hot chocolate for 2,500 people!
Our bonfire is World Famous, well at least RI Famous, with an article in today's ProJo.
