WMGK's Big Bad Bonfire Coming October 18th
October 1, 2014 at 12:22 PM (PT)
On SATURDAY OCTOBER 18th, GREATER MEDIA Classic Rock WMGK/PHILADELPHIA will hold a free fall celebration centered around a huge bonfire that will be crowned with a 12-foot-high flaming guitar. Attendees will be able to meet the MGK air staff and rock out to MGK's house band, WORK RELEASE, while enjoying delicious offerings from food trucks as well as cold beers from the outdoor bar.
Additional activities include free games for children and adults, fire and rescue demos from UPPER SALFORD Fire Department, including opportunities for children and adults to use the fire hose and don fire fighter gear.
Two of the day's main attractions will be morning man JOHN DEBELLA's Wife Carry and Pumpkin Fling activities. The Pumpkin Fling involves listeners flinging pumpkins with a specially designed pumpkin slingshot. The person who flings their pumpkin the farthest wins concert tickets. The Wife Carry is when a man carries his wife through an obstacle course in hopes of achieving the fastest time. The couple with the fastest time wins double the wife's weight in cash plus the wife's weight in MAGIC HAT beer.
A desire to improve and add to this year’s Wife Carry is actually what spawned the creation of the Big Bad Bonfire. DEBELLA asked listeners what he could do to make this year’s Wife Carry 'Au-taw-some,' or an awesome, autumn celebration. Listeners suggested a bonfire. Upon hearing that suggestion, DEBELLA immediately began searching for a location, assistance from a local fire company and additional entertainment and activities to add to the experience.
