Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

Join Valpo Parks downtown for the chance to safely view the 2024 Solar Eclipse!  Watch day turn to night as Valparaiso experiences about 95% coverage of the sun during this exciting natural phenomenon.  Purchase lunch from one of the food trucks, learn about the Eclipse, and then see if for yourself!
