The Morrisville Town Council apparently has a thing for campfire tradition, and a good sense of humor.
The town will officially take on the name “S’Morrisville” for a day on Friday, Aug. 11, in honor of National S’mores Day.
The honorary holiday actually falls on Thursday, according to several reliable s’mores sources, including the Girl Scouts. But the town chose to observe it a day later in hopes of a better turnout for the festivities at the start of the weekend, town spokeswoman Sarah Williamson-Baker said.
People are invited to attend a free public event at 6 p.m. Friday at S’Morrisville Community Park, at 1520 Morrisville Parkway.
“We’re building community spirit one sweet tooth at a time,” S’Morrisville Mayor Mark Stohlman said in a news release. “Changing the name of the town for one day is fun; I encourage everyone to refer to the town as S’Morrisville this Friday!”
The celebration will include a camping-themed movie, free s’mores and fire safety information. There will also be four cookout-themed food trucks open for business.
People can park at S’Morrisville Community Park or S’Morrisville Elementary School, and are asked to use the #smorrisville hashtag when sharing content from the event on social media.
