Tonight we went to Temescal Gateway Park for their Thursday night campfire.
Here's how it works:
- Campfire starts at 7:00 pm, so get there at 6:30 pm to picnic.
- Park on the street for free, or park in the park for $7.
- Bring a picnic dinner and beverages, a blanket, sweaters, graham crackers, and a king-size Hershey's chocolate bar. (Marshmallows & marshmallow-roasting-forks are provided.) (Some people even brought hot dogs for roasting.)
- A naturalist will do a lesson. (Tonight's lesson was on water; this summer, there have been lessons on predators/prey, ground squirrels, etc.)
- Silly campfire songs are sung.
- The marshmallow-roasting forks come out. Everyone lines up and gets a fork and a couple of marshmallows and circles up around the fire. (You can bring your own sticks and marshmallows and skip the line, but the line moves so fast so it's not necessary.)
