Celebrate Winter Solstice at Belle Isle with James River Park

Friends of the James River ParkFrom the Friends of the James River Park:

For the third year in a row, the Friends of the James River Park is marking the Winter Solstice with a low-key yet heartwarming gathering on Belle Isle. Meet at the Tredegar side of the Belle Isle Pedestrian Bridge at 4:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 21 to walk across the river as the sun sets. We’ll warm ourselves up with togetherness, perhaps a poem or two and by giving gifts to the amazingly devoted James River Park System staff. Bring your own hot chocolate (and a flashlight).

  1. I am still looking for some singers to help us celebrate the solstice. If you know of a small choral group, let us know at fojrp@mindspring.com

  2. Are non-members invited? Do we need to bring gifts?

  3. Sounds like fun. So we should bring some kind of gift? I don’t really know anyone. Suggestions? Price range?

  4. Everyone is welcome. The Friends of James River Park gives our gifts to park staff at the event. You don’t need to bring a gift though they sure deserve something!

  6. Absolutely anyone is welcome and you don’t need to join the Friends or bring anything! It’s just a very fun event and everyone is welcome! Bundle up though. Walking across the foot bridge can be very chilly but we will have a warm fire on the other side!
