Solar Day & Solstice Sunset

Enjoy sun-based activities on Solar Day 2017

Celebrate the very longest day of 2017 during Solar Day & Solstice Sunset on Wednesday, June 21, at Observatory Park! From 6 to 9:30 p.m., activities for the whole family will include cooking s’mores in a solar oven, participating in solar-powered toy car races, testing light-sensitive beads and viewing the sun in a safe way using this special park’s very special telescope. Plus, stick around for a Observatory Park sunset if skies are clear – around here, they can be quite the show. Registration is not required for this event, where all activities will be wheelchair/stroller accessible.
