Windy, stormy weather last week could not douse the Gibraltar Schools traditional homecoming bonfire. The event, used to rally support for the Gibraltar High School athletic teams and start spirit week, had been set for last Wednesday. Heavy rains and high winds canceled the bonfire. Organizer Josh Kropuenske says for a while it didn’t seem that the bonfire would be held this year. Then a promising forecast and public demand combined to make rescheduling a necessity.
The Gibraltar Schools homecoming bonfire will start at 8:00 PM Thursday at Baileys Harbor Recreational Park on Summit Road following a brief performance by the pep band.
