Another Successful Cooling at the Cave

 

Dunbar Cave State Natural AreaClarksville, TN – On Saturday July 28th, the mouth of Dunbar Cave was a buzz with activity.  It was time for the annual Cooling at the Cave event, sponsored by the Friends of Dunbar Cave.  As the afternoon temperatures soared, the local flocked to cool down in the constant cool breeze blowing from the mouth of the cave.

The Cumberland Winds Band provided the music, while children danced and the adults clapped.  The Friends of Dunbar Cave provided ice-cold lemonade, water, and home-baked cookies.  Many played board games while tapping the toes.  Back in the days before air conditioning, this is how locals cooled off and fellowshipped with neighbors.

Dunbar Cave State Natural AreaClarksville, TN – Every year the Friends of Dunbar Cave (FODC) sponsors the “Cooling at the Cave.”  The event is spearheaded by Barbara Wilbur, and is intended to be a throwback to simpler times, when folks would beat the heat by sitting near the mouth of the cave, enjoying the company of neighbors, listening to music, and the constant cool air of the cave. This year Cooling at the Cave will coincide with the celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Tennessee State Parks on July 28th.

With entertainment provided by Cumberland Winds Dixie Band, which will perform Dixieland style music. Tables, chairs and board games will be provided by FODC, however, events goers are encouraged to bring their own to ensure they have a seat at this popular local event. Refreshments will be available for donations, which help offset the cost of the event.
