Cooling at the Cave to be held at Dunbar Cave this Saturday July 25th, 2015

Dunbar Cave State Park - Clarksville TNClarksville, TN – On Saturday, July 25th, from 3:00pm-5:00pm, come out to Dunbar Cave State Park for the annual Cooling at the Cave event. Join the Friends of Dunbar Cave in enjoying live music, games and refreshments at the cool cave entrance.

Prior to air conditioning being widely available, locals would gather at Dunbar Cave to enjoy the cool air gently blowing from the mouth of the cave. Many concerts were held there as people would fellowship and beat the heat of summer.

For years, the Friends group has put on Cooling at the Cave to recreate this atmosphere. This year is no exception.

As usual, home baked goodies and drinks will be available. The Friends group will have chairs set up. But they fill up fast, so please bring extra chairs and your favorite games.

This year the entertainment is the Cumberland Wind Jazz Project, so bring your dancing shoes. The acoustics at the cave entrance really enhance the musical experience. We are honored to have such an established local band to provide quality entertainment.

All ages are welcome and admission is free (donations encouraged; T-shirts, memberships, and postcards available to purchase).

Dunbar Cave State Park is located at 401 Old Dunbar Cave Road, Clarksville Tennessee.
