At night time the area has a beautiful glow for fifteen minutes when the 'Ring of Fire' is lit. This ring is created by the existence of several fire pits around the statue. The pits are lit manually, usually once per night, weather permitting. This incredible sight can be witnessed standing alongside the Arkansas River. Night time at The Keeper of the Plains Statue is perfectly captured on this acrylic fridge magnet from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts.
