Common Bonfire Questions


What time should I start my bonfire?
That's totally up to you! Some folks want to watch the sunset, and others want to start when it's totally dark. Click here to preview local sunset times. Keep in mind that it gets dark roughly one hour after sunset.

Why do you ask me to choose my top three location choices when booking a bonfire?
There are a limited number of permits available at each location. If we cannot purchase a permit at your first choice, we will automatically try for your next choice.

What if I have more than 29 guests at my bonfire?
Walton County has special event permit requirements if you have more than 29 guests at your event. Ask and we'll walk you through the process!

What about food?
We provide a table and table cloth for your use. You may bring any food or beverage that you like or have it catered. Just remember-- no glass or ceramic on the beach.

What if the weather is bad?
You have until 1 pm on the day of your bonfire to decide if you would like to cancel due to weather conditions. If you cancel due to weather, all money is refunded minus the non-refundable/non-transferable $105 bonfire permit fee. If you would like to reschedule your bonfire, we will work with you to make the proper arrangements, but you will need to pay $105 for a new permit as the original permit cannot be transferred to another date or location.


Sea Turtles:
Turtle nesting along the Gulf Coast beach occurs from May through October. It's an exciting time! We are grateful to the South Walton Turtle Watch folks for their diligent husbandry management. If you happen upon a stranded turtle, DON'T touch it and DON'T blind it with your flashlight. DO call the turtle hotline 850-865-4503 immediately.   If you would like more information on these beautiful creatures and how to support local conservation efforts, contact Friends of SW Turtles or Sea Turtle Conservancy. Occasionally, we need to work around turtle nests, so thank you in advance if that comes up.
