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.
