Spontaneous Combustion Community Bonfire

Jan 26, 2019 (Past event)

Bonfire and fireworks at the Spontaneous Combustion community bonfire in Frisco

What does a town of 3,000 do with “gently used” Christmas trees? We throw a party with a bonfire of course! Spontaneous Combustion is a community celebration, which features a bonfire and fireworks, as well as beverage (including beer from Outer Range Brewing Co.) and chili sales to benefit the Summit Nordic Ski Club, which has been providing access to Nordic skiing for Summit County’s youth for nearly 50 years.

How We Fuel the Bonfire

Frisco’s Spontaneous Combustion Community Bonfire is fueled by recycled Christmas Trees in the B1 Parking Lot at the entrance Frisco Bay Marina at the intersection of Marina Rd. and Summit Boulevard (map). Through January 26, 2019 at 4:00pm, the Town of Frisco is accepting Christmas trees to fuel the Spontaneous Combustion bonfire. 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.

For further information about dropping off a Christmas tree or the Spontaneous Combustion Bonfire, please contact Nora Gilbertson at NoraG@townoffrisco.com or at 970-668-9132.
