Winter Solstice

December 21, Sunday, 5:00-9:00 PM

The longest night of the year is upon us! Will the sun ever return?

Come out to Metea County Park for a night of education and celebration on Winter Solstice evening to learn about different cultures’ view of the solstice, celestial origins of Christmas traditions, light a fire and bang a drum!

We’ll start off with a hike, so dress for the weather! Then we’ll come inside the Nature Center to warm up, listen to a live version of the popular NIPR radio show “Folk Tales” with Julia Meek and Jill Mozena. The Sophia’s Portico Drummers will wrap up the evening with word and song.

Admission is $5 per person, kids 6 and under are free. For more info, call 449-3777.
