What: Winter Solstice Celebration 2018
When: 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Dec. 21
Why you should go: It is the longest night of the year, why not make the most out of it during this annual celebration? First enjoy some cookies and hot cider indoors while listening to festive music performed by the Pilgrim Brass Choir. There will also be free solstice-themed craft offered for children to try. Later on make your way outdoors, stroll the self-guided Solstice Traditions Trail, a candlelit route through the forest, then warm up by a bonfire and stop by the stage area to watch costumed interpreters perform interactive skits highlighting solstice traditions of past civilizations like those of the Druids and the origins of mistletoe. Make sure to dress warmly for the December weather.
How much: Registration is not required for this free event.
