Come celebrate the last full moon of summer with a beautiful bonfire on the beach with friends and neighbors. The bonfire will be near the end of Boardwalk 1 but the exact location won’t be known until that night when we know where is a safe distance from all turtle nests. I’m sure there will be a good location somewhere on our growing beach that is near Boardwalk 1. Since it is turtle season, the bonfire will be out by 10:00 pm.
To keep things simple, each person brings what you want: food, drinks, chairs and a stick of firewood for a big bonfire. Nothing will be provided but a beautiful beach, a bonfire and, hopefully, a full moon.
If you want to test your lunar smarts, take this quiz. I have to admit, I didn’t get a passing grade.
Put these dates for the Full Moon Bonfires on your calendar:
Monday, September 24
Wednesday, October 24
Friday, November 23
There’s always plenty of room on the beach for everyone, so invite a friend or bring your house guests.
How the full moon got its name
Per Old Farmers Almanac:
August: Full Sturgeon Moon – Some Native American tribes knew that the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this full Moon. Others called it the Green Corn Moon.
