Chimney Rock Easter Sunrise - Sunday, March 27, 2016

It’s tough to inspire people to get out of bed in the dark of night, but those who have witnessed the sun rising over Hickory Nut Gorge and Lake Lure know that Chimney Rock’s Easter Sunrise Service is the place to be on Easter Sunday.

For 60 years, the Park has opened its gates to the community for inter-denominational worship filled with scripture, song, and fellowship. The service takes place beneath 535-million-year-old Chimney Rock, the monolith for which the Park is named. Gates will be open from 5-6 AM for the 7 AM service. There is no admission charge and guests are welcome to stay and enjoy the Park for the day.
