Winter Solstice Celebration

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

It’s the official first day of winter and the longest night of the year! That means we have winter fun to look forward to as well as progressively longer days. Let’s celebrate the joys of winter and the celestial movement away from darkness toward light! With a nod to the Scandinavian Feast of Yule, we’ll burn some “Yule logs” and gather around the fire to learn a little more about the winter solstice as we make s'mores, sip delicious hot chocolate, and listen to some sunny, light-themed songs by local guitarist Jimmy G. Meet by the Rhoades Avenue entrance to the park. The entrance is located at the back of the parking lot for Union Congregational Church (55 Rhoades Avenue).

Please contact Maura (mogara@thetrustees.org; 508-668-6136) with questions or to check for cancellation in case of inclement weather.
