19th Annual Winter Solstice Torch Lit Hike

Wednesday, December 7 2022 5:00-7:00 pm Walk our paved torch lit trail to celebrate the change of seasons and all things winter on this family favorite! Live raptors, roaring bonfire, hot chocolate, learn how local wildlife prepare for winter and things you can do to be prepared for winter activities. See the park in a whole new way! Decorated trees will line the trail in support of our partnership with Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity! See the creative trees local families, groups and businesses have designed. Trees will stay up through Jan 31, 2023. A special thank you to the Salvation Army's Canteen for serving hot chocolate. 816.325.7115.
