Celebrate winter solstice Dec. 22 with Three Rivers

Celebrate the longest night of the year with fire, music and darkness. Create a warm fleece hat, find your way along the blindfold blizzard walk and compose a winter poem. Follow Old Man Winter to the bonfire for the traditional “tying down the sun” and burning of troubles. Sing ancient winter carols and enjoy cookies and wassail (cider), symbolizing the hope that summer will return.
