Avon Lake Star Parties
Join us as we hunt for shooting stars, look at the man in the moon and much more!
Our local astronomer Suzie Dills will be on hand with a telescope or two to show you what to look for.
Stop by to take a quick peek or bring a blanket and snacks and stay for awhile. No registration required.
Free for the whole family!
Location: Walker Road Park, by the pavilion
What if it’s cloudy? Unfortunately, clouds will prevent the program from taking place.
If this is the case, we will have to cancel. But plan to attend the next one!
If weather is questionable check our Facebook page for updates: – No news is good news!!
Masks will be required when viewing through the telescope, for everyone over the age of 2.
We will use a protective cover over the telescope eyepiece which will be cleaned after each person views an object. When waiting in line, please be six feet apart. Parents can assist their children on the step ladder, so they can view too! We will clean the step ladder after each use. Hand sanitizer will be available.
Once again this year, we will not be able to pass around binoculars. Please bring your own binoculars.
