Up In Flames - Travel - 300

“It is not light that we need, but fire;
it is not the gentle shower, but
thunder. We need the storm,
the whirlwind, and the earthquake.”

-Frederick Douglass


Attend a fire centric festival or community event.


1) Identify an upcoming fire centric event. This might take a bit of research and planning.


Festivals, like Michigan Nordic Fire Festival or the Redding Fire Festival.

Fire safety demonstrations, like those that happen at Florida Fire Fest.

Fire station open house demonstrations, like those put on by Roanoke Texas

Community marshmallow roasts, like the one thrown by the Town of Tecumseh in Ontatio, Canada.

Note: 1) Key to this objective is the community aspect. We're not looking for an event at your house, or a friends house. We're looking for a public event related to fire. 2) There should be live fire, as in actual flames, as a component of the event you choose. 

2) Go to the event! 

3) Take a photo at the event and post it on Instagram or Twitter with the tag #QuestScouts. Alternatively, you can also share your photo in our Facebook group.

4) In the comments below, describe your fire filled adventure. Who did you go with? Was it any fun? Did anything interesting happen? Did you learn anything?
