Get out the graham crackers and marshmallows because this is the month to celebrate s'mores.

National S'mores Day takes place Wednesday, Aug. 10. Families who don't have a way to toast marshmallows in their backyard can visit any area Metro Park and use a grill at the picnic shelter. For tips on making the tasty treat, check out this article from the Columbus Parent archive.

If you're willing to wait 10 days, the folks at Glacier Ridge Metro Park will do the heavy lifting. The park is hosting a Campfire & S'mores program at 5 p.m. Aug. 20. Glacier Ridge is located at 9801 Hyland Croy Road, Plain City, 43064. For details, go to reservations.metroparks.net/programs/37243.
