Jan 9-10, 2016 (Past event)
Through January 9, 2016, the Town of Frisco is accepting Christmas trees to fuel the Spontaneous Combustion bonfire occurring on Saturday, January 9, 2016. Trees must be stripped of all lights, tinsel, garland, tree stands and decorations prior to drop off at the Frisco Bay Marina dirt lot at the corner of Summit Boulevard/Highway 9 and Marina Road. Only real trees will be accepted, and no other materials will be accepted including but not limited to building supplies and packaging. The tree drop off is open 24 hours a day.
The Spontaneous Combustion bonfire is part of Frisco’s Gold Rush events. On Saturday, January 9, 2016, the Town of Frisco and Frisco Nordic Center will host the 46th Annual Frisco Gold Rush. Frisco’s Gold Rush is the longest-running Nordic event in Colorado and features classic and skate ski races of various distances. These legendary races serve as a benefit to the Summit Nordic Ski Club and a portion of the proceeds raised will help send local athletes to Junior Nationals. The ski events are followed by the Spontaneous Combustion bonfire fueled by Christmas trees at 6:00 p.m. and with fireworks at 8:00 p.m.
