Fall Bonfire & Cookout : Friday Night

Setting the stage for a cool evening outdoors with a bonfire, provides a fun and relaxing night. The evening can be a gathering to explore foods cooked over an open fire. With cast iron pots and grills, preparing food in a rustic and primitive approach gives food different flavors. It can also be very adventuresome to cook this way. From chili to roast pig, outdoor cookouts provide a variety of food options to get creative with.

Being in October, outdoor activities and treats can be coordinated for the fall gathering. Celebrate festivities with the following ideas:

  • Pumpkin Carving
  • Bobbing for Apples
  • Donut on a String
  • Horseshoes
  • Apple Cider
  • Kettle or Caramel Popcorn (over fire)
  • Roast Chestnuts
  • Candy Apples


Josh and Amber have this as an annual cookout/bonfire tradition as a family gathering. They carve pumpkins for the evening and enjoy dipping crisp, sweet apples into caramel sauce. It is a fun event they enjoy and continue it each year.
