On April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, the United States, and Canada. A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, completely blocking the face of the Sun. The sky will darken as if it were dawn or dusk.

Embark on a cosmic adventure as Downtown comes alive with a weekend full of festivities celebrating the awe-inspiring solar eclipse.
