The countdown is on to a really cool astronmical event right here in Indiana!  The moon will pass in front of the sun completely for just a few minutes and we will all stand in awe to witness this event.  Local schools are out on Monday, April 8th, 2024 and our overnight accomodations are filling up quickly so this promises to be a busy weekend.

We are hopeful for clear skies and either way, the following events will be offered in the days leading up to the eclipse and just after.  We encourage you to stay awhile because traffic could potentially be horrific and the more folks stay until Tuesday (if you're traveling) the better everyone's experience will be.  So fill up with gas before you arrive, pack plenty of food and drinks for your stay and enjoy the following!

(These programs are subject to change at any time, we're planning but also staying a bit fluid as we go)
