Total Solar Eclipse Party

August 19 - August 21

Black Out Tee ShirtThe City of Arnold looks forward to being part of the “slice” of land area that will experience a Total Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017.

We are in the Path of Totality for the Total Solar Eclipse, and Arnold will be ready with a 3-day event to celebrate! Invite your family and friends to this spectacular event. The fields at Arnold City Park are the perfect spot to view the eclipse and the perfect place to celebrate for 2 days prior to the event.

We have eclipse glasses and t-shirts (t-shirt design at right) to commemorate the event (now available at the Arnold Recreation Center Front Desk).

Visit this page or the Facebook page (ArnoldParksandRecreation) in the coming weeks for more information as well as registration details!
