Everyone is excited for the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21 and we have all the details on where you can see it from and what time you should be prepared to look for it! This event is a fun sighting for everyone and we can’t wait to make memories with our family and friends as we prepare for our own little Solar Eclipse party!

Since it is rare to see a full solar eclipse, a lot of people have decided to take off work & take the kids out of school to witness this special event.  Sometimes you learn more by witnessing an actual event than by reading about it in a book and we want to help you create memories and start traditions. So we’ve put together our tips on how to have your own solar eclipse party with us in Branson! This can be educational and fun!
