Annual bonfire to take place

Written by Maria Manaog, Staff Writer

Corona del Sol will be having its annual bonfire on October 26.

The bonfire is an event that marks the end of the football season every fall. Traditionally, a towering pile of cardboard and wood scraps is lit on fire at the end. It also serves as a festivity that brings the Aztec community together over carnival-like games and activities.  

“It’s like a night-time pep assembly,” Student Council sponsor Ben Forbes said. “It’s just a really fun way to celebrate school spirit.”

There will be 20 school clubs and sports teams there to promote and/or sell their specialized items. These clubs include CdS Cheer, NAHS, Aztec Gamers Club, Aztec Strong Club, DECA, Clay Club, Make-A-Wish Club, Girls Golf, and the Gay Straight Alliance. Various food trucks, a bouncy house, and a dunk tank will also be available for all attendees to enjoy.

The cost for entry is $10 or 10 cans of food. If you decide to bring food, make sure it is not expired and aren’t fragile (ex: ramen). All donated food will be going to the St. Vincent de Paul food bank. The bonfire will start at 6 p.m. and end at 9 p.m.
