Most Events Require A Ticket

The Total Eclipse of the Sun.

1:00pm – 3:00pm – Addison Circle Park

The city of Addison, Texas is hosting “Total Eclipse of the Park” and I thought this would be a great place to hang out and enjoy the eclipse.

On April 8, 2024, the stars align (literally) for the most electrifying event in Addison Circle Park as we come together to form a “Total Eclipse of the Park”.

Star gazers of all levels are encouraged to grab their blankets, lawn chairs, and coolers join us, live music by Extended Play, and fun yard games provided by Addison Outdoors.

It will definitely not be a regular Monday. It all culminates with a chance to view the total solar eclipse starting around noon and reaching totality at 1:40pm.

I could not find an exact location for everyone to meet, so I am just saying the Northwest corner of the park.
