Bonfire Welcomes Travis Parker

PORTLAND, ORE., Dec, 2002- Bonfire would like to join Travis in wishing you a happy holiday. We are excited to welcome Travis Parker to our family. As most of you know, Travis has amazing snowboarding Abilities, but he also has a unique artistic sense. This combination makes him a perfect match for the Bonfire family.
