Entry Description
Play marshmallow games, eat s’mores and help choose the winner of a s’more recipe contest at Monroe Lake’s third annual S’mores Celebration at Paynetown State Recreation Area on Saturday, Aug. 9.

The highlight of the event is the s’mores sampling campfire at 8 p.m. Attendees can taste the three finalists’ recipes from the s’mores competition and choose the winner via people’s choice voting.

Activities begin earlier in the day.

All ages are invited to compete in the “chubby bunny” contest at 3 p.m., which is limited to the first 20 competitors. Contestants will stuff as many marshmallows into their mouths as possible – while still being able to say “chubby bunny.”

Teams of two, three or four people can sign up for the marshmallow architecture contest at 4:30 p.m. All ages are welcome. The challenge is limited to eight teams, who can register in advance at the Paynetown Activity Center earlier in the afternoon. All supplies are provided.

There are also two programs for younger visitors. Children can drop by the activity center to make their own marshmallow roaster playset between 1 and 5 p.m. Then, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., they can stop by the activity center amphitheater to play “pin the chocolate to the graham cracker.”
