The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum, Charles A. Lindbergh State Park, and Charles A. Lindbergh House & Museum are hosting their annual Candlelight Hike to give families and friends an opportunity to enjoy winter at the beginning of the new year. The Candlelight Hike will be held Saturday, January 4, 2020, from 5 – 8 p.m.

All three sites will be open during the event, allowing participants to view exhibits, warm up, and enjoy refreshments. Participants can start at any of the sites and hike the trails, which will be lit by luminaries, between the sites. People are encouraged to bring snowshoes. Pets are also welcome if they are on leashes.

During the Candlelight Hike, visitors to the Weyerhaeuser Museum will have a final chance to see the exhibit “The Story Behind the Tat: Tattoo Art in Central Minnesota.” The exhibit will be dismantled following the hike.

If weather conditions necessitate canceling this year’s event, it will not be rescheduled due to work that will be happening at the Lindbergh House and Museum.

The Candlelight Hike is free and open to the public.

Volunteers are needed for setting up and lighting the luminaries, monitoring the luminaries, and picking them up after the event. Those interested in volunteering or who want more information can call the Weyerhaeuser Museum at 320-632-4007, the Lindbergh House & Museum at 320-616-5421, or Lindbergh State Park at 320-616-2525.
