Cheerleaders, sports teams, band members, Los Alamos Youth Leadership participants and other students, teachers and staff intend to light the sky with Topper spirit Wednesday night.

The annual Los Alamos High School bonfire is being held to spur the Toppers on to victory against the Belen Eagles at Friday night’s Homecoming football game.

The community is invited to join in the fun beginning at 6 p.m. in the Sullivan Field Parking Lot by the ticket booth where Key Club members will sell hot chocolate and goodies. At 7 p.m., LAHS coaches will light the bonfire.

Wood and paper for the bonfire will be loaded during the lunch hour Wednesday at Sullivan Field under the supervision of Assistant Fire Chief/Fire Marshal Michael Thompson.

LAYL’s XBRD Team members Kory Archuleta and Chase Havemann met with Thompson to discuss plans for the bonfire.

“We met at the high school library and they were very enthusiastic,” Thompson said. “This is an annual project and the kids are trying to cover all the bases.”

The Los Alamos Fire Department is providing protection at the event including safety gloves. Firefighters will standby in case something unforeseen happens.

“I’ll go over Wednesday afternoon to review the bonfire and make sure it’s packed properly,” Thompson said.
