Cave Sing at Mammoth Cave National Park
Mammoth Cave National Park Superintendent Sarah Craighead invites all area residents to the 35th annual Cave Sing, Sunday, December 6, 2015. Participants will depart from the visitor center at 2:00 p.m. for this free event.
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 Caveman Chorus is back this year,” said Johnny Merideth, one of the event coordinators. “We hope visitors will enjoy the a cappella tones of this old fashioned barbershop group. And the Glasgow Brass Quintet will perform in the cave, too. It’s a beautiful sound.”
The schedule follows:
1:15 p.m., storytelling at the Mammoth Cave Hotel Rotunda room.
2:00 p.m., depart for cave from the visitor center. Inside the cave, visitors will hear the Caveman Chorus and the Glasgow Brass Quintet.
3:30 p.m., complimentary refreshments are served at the Mammoth Cave Hotel and Santa Claus arrives.
Please remember, Cave Sing requires walking up and down a steep hill and climbing steps. Participants should dress warmly in layers and wear comfortable shoes or boots. Even though the cave air stays at a constant 54 degrees Fahrenheit, windchills in the entrance are much cooler.
