ROCKPORT - Students in Rockport are excited about a homecoming bonfire tonight at Rockport Beach Park. Organizers spent the weekend putting the finishing touches on dozens of pallets stacked at the park.
People we spoke with couldn't put on exact date on the last time there was a bonfire in town for homecoming, but put it around the late 90's.
The event is scehduled to get underway tonight at 7:45, with the actual lighting of the bonfire at 8:00.
The event put together by parents isn't sponsored by the Aransas County School District or the fire department. The flyer made that pretty clear.
