Spring Equinox Celebration

Custom Search 2

Make plans to take family and friends to Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park to watch the Spring Equinox sunset the same way the Plum Bayou culture did more than 1,000 years ago.

The celebration will be March 22, 4 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Beginning at 4 p.m., take part in a Native American tools and weapons demonstration and use weapons similar to the ones used here so long ago. At 5 p.m., the park archeologist will tell about how the mounds are arranged to coincide with solar events.

After a guided tour of the mound site, the sunset will be observed over one of the mounds.

Admission: $4 adult, $3 kids ages 6-12, under 6 free.

Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park is in Lonoke County, on U.S. Highway 165 near Scott.
