2017 Cave Sing

If you have never been inside Mammoth Cave, look forward to the Annual Cave Sing in December. Visitors enjoy the immense, underground beauty of the cave, intertwined with the beautiful glow of a Christmas tree covered with lights and the synchronicity of a holiday choir, brass band and sometimes both. Just one visit inside is enough to suddenly inspire the mind to realize just how tiny we are in comparison to nature. The crowd is in a festive mood, most wearing holiday-themed attire. As we descend into the cave, the Park Rangers smile and nod in welcome. It is a time for celebrating the amazing cave that has hosted this tradition for generations and for enjoying the hospitality Mammoth Cave National Park is known for, such as the hot apple cider, coffee, cookies and photos with Santa and a lady elf, waiting for visitors at the conclusion of the performance.
