Despite many of our yards currently being rivers, there will be a time soon when it would be nice to sit around a fire and grill hot dogs and roast smores. However, is a campfire legal in the city of Harrisonburg?
The answer is yes. You may make fires in the city of Harrisonburg but with limits. Here are the regulations as outlined by the city.

It may have changed but you were also required to obtain a bonfire permit (free) from the fire department. You just have to tell them where and when you're having the fire and stop by and to pick it up. There is an exception for cooking fires, but then it must be extinguished once cooking has completed. (Technically)

Tim, thanks for the comment. My understand before doing this blog was similar to yours; mainly that fires had to be for cooking. The information I pulled was from the city website last updated on March 29, 2017.
