Resident registration is open now.
Non-Resident Pre-Registration starts at 9am Monday, October 9th, 2023 – while supplies last.
The partial eclipse begins at 11:48am. Maximum totality is at 1:07pm. The partial eclipse ends at 2:28pm. Entire Eclipse will last 2 hours and 41 minutes. Come and safely view the partial eclipse.
Avon Lake Resident Astronomer, Suzie Dills, will be onsite with a special telescope for safely viewing the sun.
Avon Lake Public Library will be partnering with us to provide grab-and-go crafts. Avon Lake Parks & Recreation will be providing crafts, moon pies, and eclipse gum, and other giveaways while supplies last.
Food trucks will be on hand for food purchases.
This is a FREE event. The first 250 people to pre-register will receive FREE solar eclipse glasses at the event. Each member of your party (including non-residents) must have an account with us to pre-register.
NOTE: You do not need to register to attend, only register if you want to try to get free glasses. You must attend the event in order to claim your free glasses.
We encourage everyone to bring solar eclipse glasses or make their own Cereal Box Viewer if you didn't pre-register and get glasses.
You should NOT look at the sun without proper protective glasses. Sunglasses do not protect your eyes from looking at the sun during a partial eclipse.
