The Kearney community plans a weekend of events Aug. 19-21, with watch sites at the Archway Monument, various parks around the cities, and at the University of Nebraska at Kearney Cope Stadium, for a free, public Watch Party from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. This is a free, public event with free safety/eclipse watch glasses to the first 10,000. Gates will be closed when our 10,000 capacity is reached. The event, presented by UNK and Y102 brings the community to Kearney’s largest venue to safely watch the celestial spectacle while having fun, food, and music. This one-time event is expected to bring as many as 5,000 people or more to socialize and have a real educational lab experience watching the mid-day blackout.
