The celebration timed for sunset at exactly 4:15 p.m. will usher out the shortest day of the year. A short hike prior to the solstice sunset ritual is planned. Individuals are urged to dress warmly, wear hiking footwear or snowshoes or skis, and bring along water. Hot chocolate will be served.
The free event is co-sponsored by the Friends of Harold Parker and the state Department of Conservation and Recreation. For more information, call 617-828-1728 or visit www.mass.gov/dcr.
