A Special Kids & Family Holiday Event
Saturday, December 7
12-1 pm in the Visitor Center
FREE with Jingle ‘N ROCK Cave Tour Admission
KEN LONNQUIST is a funny, insightful songwriter who’s been entertaining family audiences for decades! From Parents Choice to Pete Seeger, he’s won praise for his songs, performances and recordings. On December 7th he’ll be singing a mix of popular holiday tunes and his original spins on the season. He’s written a popular musical adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” for Children’s Theater of Madison that’s been produced by that group for years, and a musical adaptation of the Yule story “Old Befana” (which was performed in the Cave of the Mounds last year). In addition, Ken has released an entire CD of seasonal songs called “Time Of Nick”. Songs from all three of these works are likely to pop up in Ken’s “Jingle ‘N Rock” performance!
Improvisational and always “in-the-moment”, Ken’s every show is sure to delight young and old.
“Exuberance, merriment, imagination and glee!”

The Adventure Begins!

Each child will receive reindeer antlers and a red nose before heading down into the deepest part of the cave to look for Rudolf and his friends. See if you can find them all!

Let it Glow! Let it Glow! Let it Glow!
Experience how minerals in the cave respond to ultraviolet light and take home your own fluorescent mineral. Discover Surprise Cave and make a holiday wish at the Dream River.
TOUR STOP 6
“Chiaroscuro” is an Italian word meaning “light-dark” and in art is the use of strong contrasts between light and dark. Experience the beauty of light in darkness in this unique installation.
TOUR STOP 7
Jingle and ROCK!
We have saved the best for last in the largest room in the cave. Everyone grab some bells and get ready to sing and play “Jingle Bells” as loud as you can so Santa can hear!
TOUR STOP 8
If we play and sing loud enough there is a very good chance Santa will pay us a visit INSIDE the cave! He has been known to stop at Cave of the Mounds this time of year.
TOUR STOP 9
Pick up Your Santa Photo
