a spot of rustic revelry in the shape of an outdoor fire pit

Hello, I am working on a document for Visit Britain website (the national tourism agency, responsible for marketing Britain worldwide & developing Britain’s visitor economy). I want to know what do they mean by "a spot of rustic revelry in the shape of an outdoor fire pit", in this context: "Winter Wonderland returns to London's Hyde Park this November with big-top shows, the observation wheel and, of course, it’s famous Christmas market. Enjoy hot cider, mulled wine and farmhouse foods alongside a spot of rustic revelry in the shape of an outdoor fire pit at the park’s heart."

Thank you in advance

    It is not well written. First of all there should be no apostrophe in 'it's' (it is the possessive pronoun here).
    Secondly, it is illogical to say
    revelry in the shape of an outdoor fire pit
    Revelry is the activity of revellers. Revellers are people actively enjoying themselves, partying etc.

    'In the shape of' is a cliché and the writer has used it without thinking.
    'A spot of rustic revelry around an outdoor fire pit' would make good sense.
