St. Louis County Executive Announces One of Area’s Largest Eclipse Events

St. Louis County, MO – St. Louis County Parks is hosting one of the biggest eclipse events in our area. The Great American Total Solar Eclipse Event kicks off at 9 a.m. at Jefferson Barracks Park on August 21st. Indie Rock Band Cold Roses will provide entertainment and several food trucks will be stationed throughout the venue. “The last time a total solar eclipse occurred in the greater St. Louis area was 1442, so this is a once in a lifetime experience for all of us,” St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger said. “We expect up to 10,000 people at Jefferson Barracks Park and the excitement is building.”

St. Louis County Parks will be distributing eclipse glasses and frisbees free of charge while supplies last. County Executive Stenger will sing the National Anthem and the United States Postal Service will unveil a commemorative eclipse stamp on the main stage. Gates open at 9 a.m. and will close at 12:45 p.m. in preparation for totality. The park will reopen at 1:30 and the festivities continue until 3 p.m. St. Louis County Police and Park Rangers will be on hand to help with parking.

  1. Ahaa, its pleasant discussion concerning this piece of writing at this place at thiswebsite, I have read all that, so at this time me also commenting here.

  2. always i used to read smaller articles or reviews which as well clear their motive, and that is also happening with this article which I am reading now.

  3. I am extremely inspired along with your writing abilities as neatly as with
    the layout to your weblog. Is that this a paid topic
    or did you modify it your self? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see
    a nice blog like this one today..

  4. It’s really a nice and helpful piece of info. I’m happy that you shared this useful information with
    us. Please stay us informed like this. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
    to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog
    when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  6. Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
