The first Mountain Day at Berea College was observed in 1875 for “enjoying the Fall colors and other natural wonders in the immediate vicinity and to provide a campus holiday free of classes and non-essential labor.” It has become an annual tradition. In recent years groups, such as the Berea College Choir, sing to greet the rising of the sun after a morning hike. Mountain Day activities included climbing the Pinnacles, kettle corn, face-painting, winning prizes from various campus organizations and clubs, and dying t-shirts! Musical and dancing performances by campus student groups such as the Black Music Ensemble and the Berea College Country Dancers during the lunch hour drew a large crowd. This year marked the 141st year celebrating Mountain Day at Berea College.
