This weekend I decided to take a walk down a steep hill and underneath an umbrella of trees along a path I don’t often travel in the park. That’s where I found the perfect bench to sit down and listen to the Carillon‘s daily music being played. And, this bench even came with a view of the lake.
The 732-bell Carillon in Stone Mountain Park, located near Atlanta, was donated by Coca-Cola after being exhibited in the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City and you can hear it being played several times throughout the day. Concerts are live on Saturday and Sunday and are taped, Monday through Friday.
