The longest night of the year is quickly approaching

The Nature and Raptor Center of Pueblo is inviting people out to celebrate the winter solstice along the river trail from 6 – 8 p.m. this coming Saturday.

The longest night of the year is celebrated around the world as the return of light, as days begin to grow longer and nights shorter.

To celebrate the solstice the center will be releasing a great horned owl which they’ve rehabilitated.

Organizers are setting up hundreds of luminarias (small candle lit paper lamps) to create what they’ve dubbed the “Luminaria Labyrinth.”

The East High School Carolers will be singing at the celebration from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

The event is free to the public, but parking is $4 per vehicle.
