Bonfire 2013

The University community braved the cold Sunday evening to witness the second consecutive bonfire, lit in honor of the football team’s defeat of both Harvard and Yale in a single season. The pyre featured the traditional outhouse, as well as a Harvard flag draped over the base of the fire.

Municipal fire officials lit the base of the pyre at 7:40 p.m.

“A raw, cold November night like this puts me in the mood for a bonfire,” President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 said to cheers from the crowd during his opening speech.
