Our Bronzeville Group will be hosting a “Bond” Fire On The Lake on Wednesday, July 31 from 6:30-9pm at Promontory Point in Hyde Park! Last year’s event was a huge success to close out Renewal Summer in 2018 and we’re looking to do it again even better this time around! Food and drinks will be provided. Come out and enjoy Lake Michigan, good food, and smores around the camp fire. This event ends at 9pm but feel Free to stay longer, as most people do, if you’d like. Park closes at 11pm.
IMPORTANT DETAILS BELOW:
*There will be seating around the fire pit but feel free to bring a chair(s), hammock(s), blanket, etc.
DIRECTIONS: The entrance to Promontory Point is at 55th and South Shore Drive. If you’re driving, there is a decent size parking lot near the entrance. Across from the parking lot, you’ll see a walking path leading to a tunnel. Take that path to the tunnel, which goes right under Lake Shore Drive, and you’ll find yourself in the park on the other side.
There are several fire pits that run against the shore line at Promontory Point, but the best spot sits at the North end (Where we will be), which is the only one with a view of the city. To get to that spot, as you exit the tunnel, hang a left or a right and the path will take you straight there.
If you have any questions, call Chris (219) 902-8671!
See you guys there!
