For almost 40 years, Grand Forks Rotary has been hosting a Halloween bonfire. The Rotary Club started to hold annual bonfires to provide a focal point for the youth and others celebrating Halloween. The event has drawn favourable attention from the local community and even was listed in Beautiful BC magazine as a must see.

The free admission event is held at Angus Macdonald Park starting at 6 p.m. with the lighting of the bonfire and ends with Grand Fork’s only annual fireworks display. In between there is a fortune-teller and hot chocolate. Back by popular demand, free bags of Rotary’s Kettle Corn will be handed out.

Rotary funds the event through the sale of door cards to show that you have contributed to the bonfire.  These cards are available through many participating merchants and any Rotarian.

Thanks to everyone who supports the Halloween Bonfire and we hope to see you out on Oct.31.
