Penn State Berks Celebrates Spring Equinox with Festival


Penn State Berks will celebrate the beginning of spring with the fourth annual Spring Equinox Festival on Friday, March 20 from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the campus Labyrinth Garden, located on the Janssen Conference Center Complex just before the intersection of Broadcasting and Tulpehocken Roads in Spring Township. This event is free and open to the public. To add to the festivities, attendees are encouraged to wear spring-themed attire or accessories.

An equinox program will be held from 7:30-8:00 p.m. and will include a short astronomy lesson, a discussion of spring traditions, greenman folklore, music, and poetry readings. Some of the other highlights of the evening will include a drumming circle from Earth Rhythms, a yoga and meditation circle, inspirational oracle readings, a moving documentary on lives transformed by walking a labyrinth, bulb plantings, and craft projects. In addition, the labyrinth will be illuminated with votive candles and luminaries creating a magical setting for continuous labyrinth walking throughout the evening.

For more information, please contact Connie Dunston, Labyrinth Coordinator, at 610-396-6011.
