Come sit by the firelight!
Boscobel invites everyone to gather around a traditional bonfire for some old-fashioned “kindled” fun at Family Bonfire Night. New this year will be Stargazing with Boscobel’s Museum Educator, Lisa Dimarzo. If it is a clear night, Dimarzo will point out autumn sky features such as Polaris, Cassiopeia, Pegasus and Cygnus while also sharing stories, secrets and lore of the HudsonValley’s starry nights with bonfire guests. As a StarLab educator, Dimarzo has been teaching about the nighttime sky for more than 10 years.
Boscobel’s Family Bonfire Night will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 13 – the next day is a school holiday. Rain date is Sunday, Oct. 20. Limited seating around the bonfire will be provided; feel free to bring your own chairs. Admission is $12 for adults, and children 10 and under are free. Friends of Boscobel members receive a 10 percent discount. Advance ticket purchase preferred. Visit boscobel.org.
