The Pratt High School Student Council will host the annual bonfire on Thursday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. behind the ACE building (the old high school) to bring the community of Pratt together before game on Friday.

Instead of the car bash like in years past, there will be a pumpkin smash, where anyone can smash an entire pumpkin for $5, or $1 per swing. Teachers and students are also invited to compete in a costume contest, with winners in individual, pair, group, teacher, and overall categories. There will also be a pep rally portion of the bonfire, with performances from the Pratt High band and cheerleaders.
