AGGIE STUDENT BONFIRE, TUESDAY NIGHT

  

Aggie student bonfire is set to take place tomorrow (Tuesday) night ahead of Texas A&M football game against LSU, Saturday.

Gates open at noon, with free admission for the early arrivals at the Brazos County site, which is off Old Hearne Road, near Mumford-Benchley Road.  The price for admission will increase to $10 per vehicle at 4 p.m. and $20 per vehicle at 6 p.m. Pedestrian entry or reentry will not be allowed.

The Burn Night speaker is expected to address the crowd at about 8:30 p.m. and the bonfire is set to burn roughly 20 minutes later.

No alcohol, firearms or illegal substances are allowed at the site, and all attendees are expected to behave calmly and in a manner which promotes a safe environment.

The student-run tradition of building a bonfire on the Texas A&M campus, ended in 1999 after the stack collapsed, killing 12.

The non-university affiliated student bonfire first began in 2002 and has since become a nonprofit organization.
