Sometimes there's just not enough days in the week, but every Wednesday we'll give you an idea of something to do to relax, spend time with family and just take some time for yourself.
This week, you can escape the winter doldrums with the outdoor fun at the Warren Township Yuletide Bonfire Festival on Saturday, the township's fifth annual such event.
Each year, residents donate their Christmas trees and on the night of the bonfire, local volunteer firefighters ignite the trees and crowds gather to watch.
But over the years the township's Recreation Commission has expanded the offerings to include musical performances, rides on a horse-drawn carriage, and marshmallow roasting (sponsored by Warren Patch). During colder winters, ice skating is possible—but don't bring your skates this week.
This year, the township added a carousel ride for youngsters.
It's all offered free of charge, and will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Warren municipal baseball fields behind the municipal complex on Mountain Boulevard.
