Trying to figure out the best place to watch the eclipse in the South? Look no further!
Unless you tuned out all the media (we wouldn’t blame you), you probably heard that America is about to experience its first total eclipse of the sun in 38 years. We invite you to join us in Ocoee Country on Monday, August 21st, 2017 when day will turn to night during this rare solar eclipse. As you can see below, Ocoee Country is the place to be to take in this unique event!
As expected, the campgrounds and cabins are filling up, so make your plans now! Polk County Chamber members, TN State Parks and others will host special events and activities leading up to totality. From the Polk County Chamber, the following events are scheduled:
- The Chamber is gearing up for the “Sun & Moon Fest” on August 20th & 21st. The festival will begin on Sunday evening at 7pm, with star-gazing in historic Reliance, TN. Monday (Eclipse Day!) brings the actual family-friendly viewing event beginning at 12 pm with story-telling, special “eclipse glasses” and more! The total eclipse will begin at 2:33 pm and will last for 2 minutes and 19 seconds at our location.
- Hiwassee/Ocoee State Park will have events all weekend long leading up to the eclipse on Monday! Bonfires, eclipse themed workshops, movie night, star-gazing and more!
- Savannah Oaks Winery is planning an eclipse viewing party with a special edition Eclipse Wine. Sip wine and watch the dance between the Sun and Moon!
Stay tuned as we roll out updates on our own eclipse rafting and zip line specials! Contact us here for more information or call 1 800-533-7767!
