Set Your Sights on April 8th as the City Prepares for a Solar Eclipse Viewing Event

On April 8, 2024, Southlake will be in the Path of Totality for a Total Solar Eclipse! The best part? The City will be hosting a Solar Eclipse Viewing Party, complete with fun activities and games for the whole family! 

Although total eclipses aren’t necessarily a rare phenomenon, being in the perfect place to witness one is! We are taking advantage of this cosmic good luck by hosting a can’t-miss celestial celebration that’s sure to eclipse all expectations! Mark your calendars and join us from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Rustin and Family Park to celebrate this incredible phenomenon Southlake style – complete with a free pair of Solar sunglasses while supplies last.  

There will be plenty of activities and fun for the whole family. Artists will be on-site to help kids paint masterpieces as majestic as the Milky Way, a live DJ will provide stellar space jams, there will be galactic games to compete in, cosmic cuisine from a handful of food trucks, and much more!  

We hope to see you there to count down the seconds until the moon eclipses the sun. Beyond the moon’s shadow of a doubt, it will be an event you won’t want to miss!
