Winter Solstice Eve 2017: Beach Celebration & Plunge
Wednesday, December 20, 2017 – 3:30 pm
Ocean Beach, Great Hwy & Quintara, SF
Take the scenic L-Taraval Muni train. Ride to 46th Avenue, walk two blocks to the beach, and look northward for group of beach-loving pagans.
This is a spiritual solstice event, NOT a beach party. There’s no alcohol or drugs allowed. So if you’re looking for a drunken beach rager, this isn’t the event for you. But if you’re looking for a way to connect with others who celebrate the solstice, you’re welcome to join.
Wear layers of warm clothes, bring along food or a non-alcoholic drink to share, and a towel if you want to plunge. A flashlight and dry socks are also helpful. Drums and other instruments are welcome for post-ritual music. Buckets and trash bags are a great way to show special love for the beach.
