Mammoth Cave National Park Superintendent Sarah Craighead invites all area residents to the 36th annual Cave Sing, Sunday, December 6, 2015. Participants will depart from the visitor center at 2:00 p.m. for this free event.
“Our annual Cave Sing is a bit different this year,” said Craighead. “Because of the cave trail construction project we will present the musical program in the Rotunda and Rafinesque Hall. Some of our rangers will be in period dress representing different eras in Mammoth Cave’s 200-year history. Coming back to the surface, and after the sun sets, the WKU Hilltopper Astromony Club will hold a star party adjacent to the visitor center.”
The idea for the Cave Sing dates back to 1883, when residents held a Christmas celebration inside Mammoth Cave. An article about the event stated, "the halls of the cave ring with joyous carols and the laughter of happy children." The park hosted the first Cave Sing in 1980.
The schedule follows:
