Santa Barbara County's largest bonfire took place in Solvang this Friday with the 31st annual Christmas tree burn.
County firefighters lit up more than 100 trees for the annual event and approximately 700 locals showed up the Santa Ines Mission to watch the fire show.
While the blaze is fun to watch, firefighters hope this will also be an educational experience, proving it doesn't take much for Christmas trees to catch fire.
The City of Solvang partnered with firefighters for the event, show it's one of the largest safety demonstrations in the area.
