“Cooling at the Cave” attracts large crowd for music, games and good company


img_3887.jpg“Cooling at the Cave,” held Saturday at Dunbar Cave, drew dozens of people eager to hear good music in the comfort of the cool air at the mouth of this Clarksville landmark.

Rows of chairs surrounded the mouth of the cave where the Holt Brothers Band played toe tapping music from 3-5 p.m. families and friends clustered around tables, playing everything from dominos to assorted board and trivia games. For others, it was simply a chance for good conversation among friends.

Friends of Dunbar Cave prepared a wide array of snacks — everything from cookies to chocolate nut confections to brownies and fruit bread. In addition to cold sodas, ice cold lemonade was the drink of the day.
