Eclipse Party Ideas

Are you ready for the big eclipse of 2017? If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of people who live or will be going to the “Path of Totality” to view the total eclipse then you’ll want to be prepared. Officials are predicting heavy traffic throughout the path during the eclipse which means you’ll want to get where you’re going in plenty of time and be prepared to stay for a while. We’ll be gathering with lots of friends and family to view this historic event and will have eclipse related foods and drinks to make the event into a party.

  1. I am definitely watching but it will only be a partial eclipse here. Our viewing time is 2:41 pm. I ordered glasses last week and probably will watch with my father-in-law who pulled out the goggles that he wore in his army days for eye protection while testing atomic bombs. I think his eyes should be well protected! 🙂
