Casper’s Midsummers Eve Clelebration Is Saturday
The origins of this rustic mountain festival go back to an earlier and tougher period in Casper’s history. It started with Neal Forsling, a gusty woman who homesteaded Crimson Dawn in the 1920s with her two young children. She began the tradition of celebrating the annual solstice with a community event deeply rooted in the wild, natural landscape where she and her children dwelled. Later, she donated the land for the park, and the cabin has since been turned into a folksy, primitive museum open to the public during the summer that was named an “Editor’s Pick” by 10Best.com. You’ll be charmed to hear tales about the friendly elves, witches and forest spirits that call Casper Mountain Home as the sun begins to set on the longest day of the year. Don’t miss this enchanting summer tradition!
