TUCKER, Ga. (November 12, 2019) – Fall will be in full swing Saturday night as Tucker’s Parks and Recreation Department hosts its first ever Campfire Night at Kelley Cofer Park. The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place from 5-8 p.m. at The Peach Pit on North Park Drive.
“We’re proud to partner with the great volunteers from Friends of Kelley Cofer Park on this awesome event,” said Tucker Recreation Leader Crystal Dawson. “The forecast is calling for gorgeous weather with a little bit of a nip in the air; perfect for sitting around a campfire with friends and enjoying s’mores.”
Campfire Night will also have a focus on safety, as scouts from Boy Scout Troop 129 will build the campfires and demonstrate how to safely extinguish them. Representatives from DeKalb County Fire will be on hand to discuss fire safety and invite kids to explore a real fire truck. Staff will also add to the experience by telling stories around the campfire.
The event is the latest in a yearlong series organized by the City of Tucker that has drawn thousands of people to explore Tucker’s parks and downtown areas. Tucker assumed responsibility for its Parks and Recreation from DeKalb County in 2018. The City currently maintains more than 300 acres of parkland across nearly 21 square miles.
