Lewis Ginter is hosting a solar eclipse party, and everyone is invited to witness this historic event in one of the area’s most beautiful settings. The event is free with paid admission to the gardens, and the first 500 people will receive free solar eclipse viewing glasses.
From Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden:
Join us in the Central Garden for a sun celebration in conjunction with the solar eclipse! On August 21, as the moon passes between the Earth and the sun, it will cast a shadow; Richmond will experience a partial eclipse with 85 percent of the sun’s surface shadowed by the moon. We often take it for granted, but sunlight is essential to life on Earth, including plants and people. Participate in sun-themed activities throughout the afternoon while safely enjoying this amazing astronomical event!
