(Riverton, Wyo.) – The City of Riverton will transform City Park into a celebration of the August 21st eclipse with a weekend “Dark in the Park” event. Similar to July’s Day in the Park, the space will be cordoned off into 140 vendor spaces during the weekend prior to that Monday’s eclipse.
“The city is planning the event now,” said co-chair Courtney Bohlender, who is leading the effort with Georgia Davis. “We’ll also have space for some hot air balloon tethered rides. It will be a family friendly weekend.” Other details of the event will be released in the coming months.
A meeting was held at city hall on Wednesday with a wide spectrum of community leaders in attendance to assist in planning the pre-eclipse event.
