The Solar Eclipse Party is first come, first serve. There is no preregistration or advance ticketing. Once our parking lot is full, we will not allow vehicles in and will be suggesting to guests that they visit other parks until spaces open back up. You are not guaranteed entry or parking if you are bringing a group, so please plan accordingly and have a backup option ready for viewing the partial solar eclipse.
If you cannot make it to our Solar Eclipse Party, please consider visiting UNCW’s eclipse event at the Watson College of Education (601 S. College Road). This event is open to the public and will take place from 1pm-4pm. If you plan to attend the event at UNCW, please make sure to park in the visitor spaces of the parking deck and pay for parking to avoid a ticket.
