Can you howl, awwwoooooooooo? Ok, that’s a little cliché, but that’s the best lead in to a post about some unique ways to celebrate Saturday’s full moon – the first of the Spring season. So call up the wolf pack and get ready to party:
Full Moon Firkin at Tröegs (Hershey)
Tröegs taps its first Full Moon firkin of Spring at 11 a.m., featuring Scratch #178, a rye ale brewed with pineapple and cherries and the brewery’s self-proclaimed “juicy, tropical flavor[ed] experimental “06277” (Nuggetzilla) hops.” Can’t make the 11 a.m. tapping? Subsequent firkins will be tapped throughout the day as needed. And if previous Full Moon Firkin parties are any indication, they will, indeed, be needed.
Full Moon Party at Tellus360 (Lancaster)
Tapping into a popular custom in Thailand, Tellus360 in Lancaster hosts a Full Moon Party starting at 9 p.m. featuring Three’s Company – DJ Evolution, DJ Gregg Nyce and VJCA – spinning dance music and orchestrating a multimedia experience complete with luminescent paint and UV lighting. Wear your brightest and get ready to howl at the moon.
Wolf Sanctuary of PA tour (Lititz)
If there’s any way to experience a full moon, it’s in the company of actual wolves. The Wolf Sanctuary of PA in Lititz offers just that opportunity with its full moon tours (7:30-10 p.m.), complete with a bon fire (BYO-marshmallows). Afraid of the dark? The Wolf Sanctuary offers its normal wolf tour from 12-1:30 p.m. as well.
According to the Wolf Sanctuary’s website, the April full moon is the Pink Moon. So, to get you in the mood, here’s Nick Drake’s classic, “Pink Moon”:
