Starvation Gulch

This weekend, the University of Alaska Fairbanks will celebrate Starvation Gulch, an annual fall tradition.

The event was first held in 1923 and includes a bonfire competition. Students use wooden pallets to try to build the most creative fire with the highest flame.

The building of the Starvation Gulch bonfires will take place Saturday, September 25th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Taku parking lot. The bonfires will be lit at 10 p.m. and the event will include music, booths and a barbecue. The public is invited to attend.
