Cahokia Mounds Summer Soltice Sunrise Observance
The Summer Solstice Sunrise observance will be held on Sunday, June 19 at 5:20 am. Meet at the Woodhenge reconstruction site. Atop a ladder at the center post, Bill Iseminger will discuss the discovery and significance of the ancient calendar. Welcome the rising sun with Bill as he has done four times a year, during each solstice and equinox. Out of respect for Native beliefs, no ceremonies will take place during this event. Solstice t-shirts will be available for purchase at the event.
