(Jackson, Wyo.) - This year, the Summer Solstice just happened to fall on the night of the full moon, which is referred to as the Strawberry moon. According to Space.com
this is the first time that a full moon has fallen on the Summer Solstice
"Full Strawberry Moon – June: This name was universal to every Algonquin
tribe. However, in Europe they called it the Rose Moon. Also because the
relatively short season for harvesting strawberries comes each year during
the month of June . . . so the full Moon that occurs during that month was
christened for the strawberry!" said the Farmers' Almanac
To celebrate the Summer Solstice, Rendezvous Park (R Park) is hosting a
Summer Solstice Celebration.
According to the organization, the celebration will feature FoundSpace by
the Jackson Hole Land Trust in partnership with Jackson Hole Public Art.
Local artists will engage the community to create temporary art
installations composed of treasures collected from JHLT conservation
easement-protected properties. In special locations Jackson Hole WILD will
also be projecting their app, Site:R Park, the site-specific music that
weaves original sounds from R Park into the fabric of the old gravel pit.
There will also be live music, local food and beverages, and lawn games.
There will be Cafe Genevieve beef sliders or mac and cheese for purchase.
