Your Guide to DUMBO Firepit

Yes, we've launched a community firepit that will generate power, thanks to BioLite's nifty thermoelectric technology, to light our holiday tree. It's all part of the DUMBO Improvement District's DUMBO as Test Kitchen program, which gives local startups the chance to pilot innovations for the good of the community.

DUMBO FirePit will burn Dec 12-23 from 4-8pm on weekdays and 1-4pm on weekends. Find the full programming schedule of free events -- including A Christmas Story screening (Dec 18) and Family Craft Day (Dec 19) -- here.
