Celebrate the most magical and darkest night of the year and the slow return of the sun with WB Parks!

Activity stations will be set up throughout this experience: Create a glowing craft; Oakland Astronomy Club will be guiding you through the night sky with telescopes (weather permitting), a custom glowing ice carving will be on display for a photo op; Warm cocoa will be waiting for you at the end of the trail.
