Easton seniors build annual bonfire ahead of game

EASTON, Pa. - Thanksgiving is still two days away, but a holiday tradition is in full swing.

Students at Easton and Phillipsburg high schools are preparing for their football teams to face off on Thanksgiving.

Seniors at Easton Area High School are spending the day building the massive wood pile for the annual bonfire.

Seniors said they're getting several tractor trailers full of wood pallets during the day to make the bonfire the best one yet.

Students will camp out Tuesday night to guard the bonfire from Phillipsburg students, and then light it ahead of the big Thanksgiving Day game.
