Mammoth Cave National Park invites all area residents to the 38th annual Cave Sing, Sunday, December 3, 2017. 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 Spirit of the Commonwealth Chorus will perform in Rafinesque Hall. Visitors will enjoy the a cappella tones of this old fashioned barbershop group. Enjoy a musical warm up in the visitor center at 1:00 p.m. with Janet Bass Smith, former cave guide and master of the keyboard. At 2:00 p.m., depart for cave from the visitor center for the main performance. Complimentary refreshments will be served at the Lodge at Mammoth Cave upon returning to the surface; watch for Santa at the Lodge! 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. For more information, visit the website above or call 270-758-2180.
