Event Description:
Monroe Lake is doing its part to ensure that an important holiday for outdoor enthusiasts doesn’t get overlooked.

The lake will hold its second annual S’mores Day celebration at Paynetown State Recreation Area on Saturday, Aug. 10.

The highlight is at 8 p.m., when visitors are invited to gather around the campfire in the activity center amphitheater to sample the three finalists in the s’mores recipe competition. The winner will be selected by people’s choice voting.

“Last year’s winner was a toasted marshmallow and a mini York peppermint patty sandwiched between chocolate graham crackers,” said Jill Vance, Monroe Lake naturalist and event organizer.

From 1 to 5 p.m., drop by the activity center to craft a s’mores magnet and campfire magnet. At Deer Run Shelter between 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m., visitors can build a marshmallow shooter and test it on a target course.

And at 6 p.m., teams of four can compete in the Marshmallow Olympics at Deer Run Shelter. All ages are welcome. Each member of the winning team will receive a s’mores-related prize. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. and is limited to 10 teams.

Paynetown State Recreation Area is at 4850 S. State Road 446, Bloomington. The entrance fee is $5 per in-state vehicle or $7 per out-of-state vehicle.
