Frisco to hold Spontaneous Combustion bonfire, fireworks on Jan. 29

The Town of Frisco will hold its annual Spontaneous Combustion community celebration on Saturday, Jan. 26. The event will feature a bonfire, fireworks, and music from DJ Landry. The bonfire will be lit with discarded Christmas trees at 6 p.m. with fireworks at 8 p.m. This year’s fireworks display will be bigger than usual, as some of the fireworks from the cancelled 4th of July fireworks display will be incorporated into this show. Chili and beverages, including Outer Range Brewing Co. beer, will be available for purchase to benefit the Summit Nordic Ski Club.

The Town is still accepting Christmas trees through 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26, to fuel the Spontaneous Combustion bonfire. Trees must be stripped of all lights, tinsel, garland, tree stands and decorations prior to drop-off at the Frisco Bay Marina dirt lot, at the corner of Summit Boulevard and Marina Road. Only real trees will be accepted, and no other materials will be accepted, such as building supplies and packaging. The tree drop off is open 24 hours a day. For further information about tree drop off and Spontaneous Combustion, please contact Nora Gilbertson at 970-668-9132 or
