Welcome Winter Full Moon Walk at Sacred Coldwater Springs
Wednesday, December 11, 2019
Gather at the park entrance, 7 pm
Park at pay meters on the access road via credit card
The December full moon in our Central Time Zone is on Wednesday. (If you have an East Coast printed calendar it’s wrong for us.)
Coldwater under a full moon with snow on the ground is bright enough to see colors at night. Please bring chocolate to share and a rattle to call/invite the spirits to our celebration. We feed the spirits that feed the Spring.
We celebrate the full moon in all-weather however the length of the walk depends on conditions. If it’s really cold or wet it’s a quick 10-minutes to the spring outflow gurgling from under the limestone bedrock Spring House built in the 1880s to supply potable water to Fort Snelling.
Full moon walks have been celebrated at Coldwater monthly since 2000.
DIRECTIONS: Coldwater Springs is between Minnehaha Park & Fort Snelling, in Minneapolis, just North of the Hwy 55/62 interchange. From Hwy 55/Hiawatha, turn East (toward the Mississippi) at 54th Street, take an immediate right, & drive all the way down on the frontage road where you can park at the pay meters.
Gather at the park entrance.
All welcome, free. Dress for the weather, especially sturdy footwear.
