It’s October, that time of year when most of us welcome a little spooky fun. We invite you to “get your Halloween on” with our friends, The Bonfire Tellers. Once again they’ll be performing some of their best ghostly tales to benefit Nourish at Food Fright 2020!
The Bonfire Tellers started in 1995 with a simple idea: telling historic ghostly tales around a bonfire to raise funds for Fort Nisqually. This grew into the wildly popular Bonfires, Beaver Pelts & Bogeymen. For 21 years, they captured the imaginations of audiences of up to 500 as they told stories of what scared people in 1855.
A change in the structure of the Fort in 2016 took away the site for the event, so, the Bonfire Tellers moved up the road to the cozy Antique Sandwich Company where they told tales to support Nourish Pierce County. They all figured that October was scary enough without adding the fear of hunger, and Food Fright! was born.
This year, of course, there’s something even scarier: a global pandemic that’s making hunger even more prevalent. So the Bonfire Tellers decided to go “virtual”. The collection of tales this year includes a haunted U-boat, werewolves, a mysterious whistling room, and a cautionary tale of greed.
So join us Friday, October 30, at 7:00 pm for this virtual event accessible on Zoom. We ask that you make a monetary donation to Nourish or bring non-perishable food donations to the Antique Sandwich Shop in Tacoma. Registration is required to attend this event. Register today.
