Songwriters, poets, artists and romantics have long been fascinated with the moon. Native Americans have paid tribute to the moon especially during Harvest season.
Crooked River Lighthouse features a Full Moon Climb with Drum Ceremony on September 19 at 7-9 pm.
The event recalls the Harvest or Corn Moon. During this season, Native Americans harvested corn and other crops.
The night’s highlights include a lighthouse climb, an informal drumming circle open to all guests and a Sacred Drum Ceremony that celebrates the Harvest Moon.
The Harvest Moon is the first full moon of the fall equinox. This is when the sun is exactly above the Equator. There are 12 hours of daylight and sunlight in some areas.
