It's the Summer Solstice and a Strawberry Moon; Here's how to celebrate in Jackson Hole

(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 since 1949 "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.
