Seattleites find a number of ways to celebrate the summer solstice, including dancing at Gas Works Park. One church used to stage sword fights, but has since changed traditions.

Marcie Sillman talks with Reverend Belladonna Laveau of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church about the pagan history behind the summer solstice and how modern Wiccans celebrate the longest day of the year.
