Rescheduled to: Friday, August 23, 2018 at 6:00pm

PRE-SALE WRISTBAND STORE IS OPEN
 
The annual bonfire is a tradition that has been a part of the Hunterdon Huskies for many years. Held just before our season opening friendship games, it is an evening full of true Huskies Spirit. There is lots of terrific food and fantastic fun for our athletes! The Huskies families fill the sidelines and cheer for each of the teams as they are brought on to the field and introduced. Our terrific cheerleaders amaze us with the awesome routines that they have been working hard to put together in what feels like a very short period of time. As the evening winds down and cools off, it is wrapped up with a phenomenal bonfire.
